The pioneer Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission, ICPC, Justice Mustapha Akanbi (retd), has told the President Muhammdu Buhari-led government to act on the looters’ list released by Reno Omokri, an ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Omokri had responded to the list of looters released by the Federal Government through the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed by dropping his own list which contained the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi and many others.
Speaking, Akanbi told Punch that Omokri’s list should not be waved aside but thoroughly looked into and handed over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for investigation.
He said, “The FG should respond to it and approach him for facts.
“FG should also investigate the allegations. Once somebody has been courageous enough to bring out a list, it should not be dismissed.
“They should look into it and examine it and if there is substance, prosecution should follow.
“It is easier for them to call people in their party who are included in the list to say: this is what has been said about you, can you defend yourself?
“They should give the list to the EFCC to investigate. The anti-graft agency should interview those whose names are on his (Omokri’s) list.”
