- A former presidential aide has expressed disappointment over Nigeria's justice system
- Okoi Obono-Obla, the former head of SPIP, made this remark as he spoke on how he was sacked by President Buhari
- Obono-Obla said that he was removed from office through the evil scheming of a cabal in top federal government circles
The immediate former chairman of the Special Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property (SPIP), Okoi Obono-Obla, has said that he has no faith in Nigeria's judiciary.
In a recent interview, Obono-Obla said that his faith in the judicial system is low that he can confidently say that there is no justice in Nigeria, Premium Times reports.
The former SPIP boss alleged that he was removed from office by President Muhammadu Buhari by the working of a cabal.
Obono-Obla went as far as saying that with the way things are now in the country, he will not trust any official appointment given to him, even if they come with protection.
He said that although he worked only within the parameters of his job schedule while in office, but that some persons in the country are always against goodness.
Obono-Obla said: “Right now, I won’t lie, if I am ever offered any anti-corruption work in Nigeria, I will be very sceptical about taking it, even if there’s protection.
“I worked and was bent on doing the right thing, in consonance with the real demands of that assignment but there are people in this country who will never let good things happen to this country.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Obono-Obla had sued the ICPC to court. Obla dragged the anti-graft agency to court to challenge its investigation on the grounds that the agency was already prejudiced against him.
He claimed that the ICPC did not invite him for questioning, adding that being declared wanted by the commission is an attempt to ridicule and embarrass him.
Legit.ng gathered Obono-Obla's counsel, F Baba Isa, said that the anti-graft agency had been served with court processes in the said suit, but they had refused to react to the suit.
