The spokeperson of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council (APC PCC), Festus Keyamo, has filed a suit against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB),to compel the agencies to arrest and prosecute the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) filed the suit after the 72-hour ultimatum he gave the agencies elapsed
Keyamo gave the ultimatum in a petition dated January 16, and addressed to the chairmen of EFCC, ICPC and CBC.
He had said Atiku should be arrested and prosecuted for alleged offences against the Code of Conduct for Public Officers, Money Laundering, Criminal Breach of Trust and Criminal Misappropriation, and Conspiracy.
Keyamo, who is the Minister of State for Labor and Employment, made the demand following the controversial videos released by Michael Achimugu, a former aide of Atiku.
In the videos released few weeks ago, Achimugu made several allegations against the PDP presidential candidate.
He had claimed that between 1999 and 2007 when Atiku was vice president, he colluded with ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo to fleece the country using what he termed “Special Purpose Vehicles” (SPVs).
Keyamo asked a Federal High Court in Abuja to compel the anti-graft agencies to investigate the matter and prosecute Atiku.
