Ex-Plateau State Gov, Sen. Jonah Jang reports to ICPC for Questioning

The former Governor of Plateau State and serving Senator, Mr. Jonah David Jang, has now reported to the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for questioning.

Mr. Jang had been invited by ICPC since October 2017, through both the Senate President and the Clerk of the National Assembly to come and answer questions on allegations of embezzling N5.6 billion belonging to the state during his tenure in office, but the invitation was not honoured.

Also, attempts to secure an arrest warrant from two different magistrate’s courts in the Federal Capital Territory proved abortive as the Magistrates declined to sign them even after the sworn requisite affidavits had been presented by the Commission.

Against this backdrop, ICPC, in a news release to the media, had threatened to declare the former governor wanted for failing to report to the Commission after the invitations.

Having concluded interactions with the Senator, ICPC is still conducting investigations on other strands of the matter.
