N13.3bn Ikoyi Apartment Loot: CNPP Demands Prosecution Of Culprits

N13.3bn Ikoyi Apartment Loot: CNPP Demands Prosecution Of Culprits

The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has accused the federal government of plotting to shield the real owners of the sums of N13.3 billion recently recovered from an Ikoyi apartment in Logos State.

It called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission  (EFCC) to prove to Nigerians that its activity was not lopsided by  naming and prosecuting its true owners.

The umbrella organisation of all political parties and association in  the country warned that it would mobilise its members, well-meaning Nigerians, and civil society groups to resist any cover up of the real owners of the stashed cash, dismissing the claims that the money belongs to National Intelligence Agency (NIA).

CNPP in a statement signed by its Secretary General, Chief Willy  Ezugwu said, “We’re worried that the current anti-graft war is becoming a show as each day passes. It is more worrisome when you begin to hear that a government security agency, the NIA, which is not a revenue generating organ of the federal government, is laying claim to the recovered money.

“The NIA’s angle to the controversy is nothing but a deliberate plot by the federal government to cover up the true identity of the looter.

“How can the NIA claim to own N13 billion cash stashed in a private residential apartment; NIA has no office in Lagos?”

“The war against corruption is now being exposed for what it truly is on a daily basis, a lopsided fight against perceived enemies of the  present administration, while all members of the ruling party are shielded from prosecution.
