ICPC Legal Department Allegedly Stalls Pinnick Corruption Trial
It has been alleged that the much-awaited corruption trial of NFF President Amaju Pinnick and several other top ranking officials has been stalled by the legal department of the anti-corruption agency ICPC.
Charges have already been prepared against Pinnick and other officials like NFF Vice Presidents Seyi Akinwunmi and Shehu Dikko, Executive Committee Member Ahmed Yusuf ‘Fresh’ and NFF General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi, but the legal department headed by a person from Delta State, same state as Pinnick, has not been forthcoming to move the case.
A woman commissioner who hails from the SouthSouth like Pinnick is also alleged to be working assiduously that the case does not see the light of day.
“Investigations have been diligently carried out and Pinnick as well as his other officials all have cases to answer in court, but it now seems most likely that some persons and processes within the ICPC have been seriously compromised unfortunately,” a top source informed www.insideglasshouse.com
At the beginning of the investigations, the properties of Pinnick and other officials were seized with the ICPC spokesperson stating that what the accused persons have is far in excess of what they have earned.
