The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) on Thursday arraigned one Abubakar Sani for providing false information to the commission.

The ICPC said the false information provided by the accused led to the raid on the residence of former VP Sambo on June 28 in Kaduna.

The ICPC and officers of the Department of State Services (DSS) had conducted the search on the Kaduna residence of the former VP. ICPC, however, did not say if anything incriminating was found or recovered from the former VP’s house during the search.

The ICPC in a two-count charge arraigned the whistle blower in a Kaduna State High Court, accused him of allegedly providing false information to the commission that led to the raid.

A Principal Legal Officer and counsel to the Commission, Elijah Akaakohol, read out the charge before Justice Aliyu Tukur, presiding Judge of the Kaduna High Court 7.

Mr. Akaakohol said the accused person sometimes in June 21, 2017 gave a false information to the officer of the commission of ICPC.

“That sometime in 2013 you conveyed a huge sums of money both in the Nigerian and other foreign currencies from Abuja Airport to a house in Ungwan Rimi GRA, Kaduna on the directive of a retired Army officer which money you suspected to be ill-gotten wealth and still laying in boxes in that said house at the moment of your report.

“And of which you made the officer of the commission of the ICPC to carry out a sting operation that turned out to be false.

“You thereby  committed an offence, contrary to, and punishable under section 64 (3) of the corrupt practices and other related offences act 2000,” he said.

The counsel also told the court that Mr. Sani equally made a false statement to one Mr. Olusegun Adigun, an official of the Commission in the course of the exercise of his duties as a public officer, contrary to section 25(1) and punishable under section 25(1b) of the ICPC act 2000.

Mr. Sani, who appeared without a legal counsel, pleaded not guilty of the allegations.

The presiding judge directed that the accused be remanded in prison custody and adjourned the case till Thursday, November 2, for hearing.

Before the adjournment, Justice Tukur urged the accused person to get a counsel to stand for him at the next hearing of the case.
