INEC Staff Jailed for collecting bribe of over N100M from Diezani


A Federal High Court sitting in Benin-City, Edo state, led by Justice P.I Ajaku, has on Thursday ordered Uluocha Brown, an Administrative secretary of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Delta state and Percy Okojie, a legal practitioner and ex-President, Rotary Club, Benin-city, be remanded in prison custody following their arraignment before her by the Economic and Financial crimes Commission (EFCC).
 It was on a 8-count charge bordering on conspiracy and money laundering to the tune of N11.5 million.

 The two were docked for allegedly collecting the money as a bribe during the weeks leading to the 2015 Presidential election.

 According to source, they are among the over 100 INEC Officials that allegedly collected part of the $115 million (N23 billion) distributed by ex-Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison-Madueke, during the countdown to the 2015 presidential election.
Mr. Paul Kola explains how he got 50% of his revenue after investing it in this profitable platform
