A top female civil servant in Abuja has forfeited a total of 61 house to the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC.
In a recent report, the top civil servant, whose name was not disclosed by the commission, allegedly owns a total of 62 houses in one of the highbrow estates in the Federal Capital Territory.
The revelation is coming following the commission’s resolve to probe and arrest civil servants living beyond their means.
Chairman of ICPC, Ekpo Nta, made this revelation while addressing participants of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies at the Abuja headquarters of the agency on Friday, April 15, 2016.
“From one of the employees of one of the organisations, we seized about 61 or 62 houses in an estate. The matter is in court so I can’t say too much but I want to say that the officer was not a man. We do prosecution but also try to seize the assets acquired (through corrupt means) so that apart from prosecution, we can strip you of the assets within and outside the country,” he disclosed.
Nta also added that once the 2016 Budget is passed, the ICPC would begin monitoring how monies are being spent.
