The Civil Society Network Against Corruption (CSNAC) has accused a former Inspector-General of police (IGP) and the chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC), Mike Okiro of N275m fraud.

The group revealed this in a petition it sent to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Daily Post reports that CSNAC claims that a whiste blower, Aaron Kaase initially submitted an evidence of Okiro’s fraudulent activities to the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), but nothing was done about it.

An excerpt of the petition which was signed by the group’s national chairman, Olanrewaju Suraju reads:

“Though, the same petition was submitted to the EFCC and followed with 2 (two) reminders by the whistleblower, the Commission is yet to come out with outcomes of its investigation

“Your Excellency, as punishment for the action the whistle-blower, Aaron Kaase, Mr. Okiro arranged the Police to put him on spurious criminal trial and suspended him from office without pay from the 27th day of May 2015 till date.”

The group also claimed that the ICPC indicted Okiro in a letter written on dated August 6, 2015, with reference number ICPC/INV/GBP/HOD/352.

However, reports say the ICPC, in a document signed by its chairman, Ekpo Nta in Abuja on Tuesday, August 11, 2015, cleared the Chairman of PSC, Mr Mike Okiro of any criminal infraction in the utilisation of part of the election monitoring money.
