N557million arms scandal: ICPC files criminal charges against ex-IGP, Ehindero


The ICPC on Monday filed a criminal suit against former Inspector-General of Police, Sunday Ehindero.

The commission also listed the suspended Commissioner of Police in charge of Budgets at the Force Headquarters, John Obaniyi, in the suit.
The suit, with file number FCT/HC/CR/92/2012, was filed on behalf of the ICPC by prosecution counsel, Paul Bassi.
The duo are alleged to be involved in N557 million arms and ammunition scandal.
It would be recalled that the ICPC, on April 2, quizzed the former police boss on the alleged misappropriation of the sum during his tenure.
The commission will, on June 6, file an application to Justice Mudashiru Oniyangi of the Federal Capital Territory High Court 4, Maitama, who has been assigned the case, to grant it leave to arraign Messrs Ehindero and Obaniyi.
Mr. Ehindero was the Inspector General of the Nigeria Police from 2005 to 2007.
