The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has accused former Minister of the Niger Delta, Godsday Orubebe, of refusing to declare one of his properties in Abuja.

A witness, Samuel Madojemu, who testified against Orubebe before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) said the former minister left out the Abuja property which he bought on April 2011 from the asset declaration forms that he submitted to the CCB.

Madojemu also told the tribunal that the ex minister’s property is located at Plot 2057, Asokoro District.
