•Speaker House of Reps, Femi Gbajabiamila

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has asked the member representing Koko/Besse Federal Constituency, Shehu Koko, to go defend himself at the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC).

The lawmaker was declared wanted because he failed to appear before the commission for an ongoing investigation into constituency projects.

Following Gbajabiamila’s clearance, Koko is expected to appear at the ICPC on Monday.

This was confirmed by ICPC spokesman, Mrs. Rasheedat Okoduwa, in a terse statement Saturday.

“The Commission accepts the assurance while it looks forward to seeing the lawmaker by Monday 16th December 2019.

“Hon. Mohammed had failed to perfect his administrative bail and ignored the Commission’s invitations,” it read. (Sunday Independent)
