- The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) storms the constituency office of Senator Buruji Kashamu
- ICPC says it recovered a transformer and three ambulances meant to be delivered as constituency projects to some parts of Ogun state
- While the ambulances have been moved to a police station, the transformer has been sealed by the ICPC
Senator Buruji Kashamu from Ogun state may be facing fresh troubles following the recovery of three ambulances and a 500KVA transformer supposedly meant as a constituency project.
The recovery was made by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) on Thursday, September 26.
The Nation reports that the ICPC said the items recovered at his office in Ijebu Ode were part of 2016 constituency projects meant to be distributed to Ogun East senatorial district.
The report quoted a statement by the spokesperson for the commission, Rasheedat Okoduwa, as saying the ICPC recovered the items following intelligence alert by a concerned citizen.
“The three ambulances which were procured at the cost of N6 million each were meant to be supplied to Obada Healthcare Centre, Oke Sopin in Ijebu North local government area; community health centres in Itele in Ijebu East and Ogijo in Sagamu.
“The transformer is the last of an initial eleven meant for distribution to various communities of Ogun East senatorial district which were procured at the cost of N3.6 million each, bringing the total for the entire eleven transformers to N39.5 million," the statement said.
The ICPC said the recovered items were seized and the vehicles were moved to a police station while the transformer was marked with the commission’s seizure seal and in the interim, kept in the custody of the manager of the senator’s office.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court Abuja, recently suspended judgment in a fresh suit filed by Kashamu seeking to stop the federal government from extraditing him to the US.
This is to stop the US from trying him for an alleged hard drug offence.
The Judge suspended the verdict following a fresh appeal by the plaintiff to the court to allow him to re-open his case afresh.
