Former Inspector General of Police Arraigned For Alleged Fraud

Erstwhile Inspector-General of Police, Sunday Ehindero, was on Thursday arraigned alongside a former police commissioner, John Obaniyi, at an Apo District High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on a six-count charge of alleged fraud.

They were accused of misusing N578 million (N557,995,065) donated by the Bayelsa State Government for the purchase of arms. According to the charge, the fund was diverted into separate accounts owned by the defendants, where it generated an interest of N16,412,315. The generated interest was allegedly used for the defendant’s personal objectives.

It was earlier in the news that the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, is set to resume the prosecution of former Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Sunday Ehindero, at a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja.

The development followed a ruling of the Supreme Court which dismissed the appeal filed by the former Police Chief challenging the jurisdiction of the Commission and that of the FCT High Court to try him.

Meanwhile, the charge read out during Thursday’s sitting of the court also alleged that the defendants lied to officials of ICPC when they told two of the commission’s staff upon enquiry about the diverted funds, that the generated interest was used for official purposes.

The defendants however pleaded not guilty to the charge.
