Judge Arrested for Alleged Demand Of N200m Bribe

The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission has commenced a probe into the 24,325 government properties that were sold to government officials under the monetisation policy of former President OLUSEGUN OBASANJO.

Also, the anti-graft agency has arrested a retired Appeal Court judge, Justice MOHAMMED TSAMIYA, for allegedly demanding a N200m bribe in exchange for a favourable judgment in a National Assembly election case that was pending before the Imo State Judicial Division of the Court of Appeal.

The ICPC said in a statement by its spokesperson, RASHEEDAT OKODUWA, that many, who bought government properties, had yet to make full payment while some others were secretly renting the properties to private citizens.

The anti-graft agency said most of the culprits were in the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation and the Federal Housing Authority.
