CCB Invites Keyamo Over Petition Seeking Atiku’s Arrest, Probe


The Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, has invited Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, is the spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council.

The CCB, in a letter, asked Keyamo to come on April 21 and also help secure the presence of a whistleblower, Michael Achimugu to assist in its investigation.

A statement on Thursday by John Ainetor, a lawyer in his chamber, quoted Keyamo assuring that “the crusade for accountability was not a campaign gimmick”.

The legal practitioner vowed to pursue the matter to a logical conclusion, “even after the victory of President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.

Keyamo had, before the general elections, asked the CCB and anti-graft agencies to investigate former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

He also petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC.

Keyamo accuses the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate of money laundering, breach of trust, criminal misappropriation, and conspiracy.

The minister’s demand followed the revelations of a Achimugu who accused Atiku of diverting public funds after releasing an audio recording of their conversation.

“Atiku colluded with his then boss, President Olusegun Obasanjo, to fleece the country and steal public funds using what he termed as Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs),” Keyamo alleged.
