  • Graft: ICPC has power to investigate any person – Court
  • By Innocent Anaba
    A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, yesterday,
    affirmed the powers of the Independent Corrupt
    Practices Commission, ICPC, to investigate
    allegations of corrupt practices made against
    any person or authority in Nigeria, even if the
    allegations arose in civil disputes.
    Trial judge, Justice Rilwan Aikawa handed down
    the decision in his ruling when he dismissed a
    suit by seven persons against the Commission
    and the Attorney General of the Federation
    challenging their invitation by ICPC during the
    investigation of a matter involving them and one
    of Nigeria’s notable legal practitioners.
    In the suit between Chief Waheed Eletu, S.B.
    Joseph, SAN, A. A. Agbojuaje, Mr Ashimi and 4
    others vs ICPC and Attorney General of the
    Federation, filed by Ebun Olu-Adegboruwa, the
    claimants, four members of the Eletu Family of
    Lagos, two lawyers and a surveyor had sued to
    challenge their invitation, the freezing of bank
    accounts and investigation by ICPC over an
    alleged dispute with Chief Afe Babalola, SAN on
    payment of professional fees of $10million in
    respect of his legal services which led to the
    recovery of a vast expanse of land for the Eletu
    family in Ibeju Lekki area of Lagos State at the
    Supreme Court.
