D’banj: Nigerians demand names of govt officials involved in alleged N-Power fraud

Nigerians on Twitter have demanded that the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) name the government officials who were involved in the alleged N-Power fraud alongside singer D’banj.

Qed.ng earlier reported that D’banj was detained by the ICPC for allegedly collaborating with some government officials to introduce ghost beneficiaries into the payroll of the N-Power scheme in order to divert funds.

The ICPC spokesperson Azuka Ogugua also confirmed this in a statement on Wednesday.

After his arrest was made public, some Nigerian stormed Twitter, demanding that the ICPC name the government officials who were also involved in the alleged fraud.

A Twitter user identified as Idris wrote: “Bro! They said D BANJ and some Govt officials diverted money. They mentioned DBANJ’s name but didn’t mention any govt officials. Government officials are now “Unknown Fraud Men” UFM.”

Another tweep, Mark Dasouze, asked, “What of the government officials involved? What are their names and have they been detained?”

TC wrote, “By the time ICPC is done investigating N-Power account not only D’banj will be arrested. Besides N-Power, all other programmes should be investigated.”

“Is D’Banj an employee of @FMHDSD. How did he manage to divert what he doesn’t manage. @icpcnigeria should hold the fund managers responsible. I am sure something also happened to NEXIT fund. This ministry will be the subject of investigation for the next administration,” Ikechukwu Nnamchi wrote.

“I don’t support any diversion of what should be for the benefit of others if that is it. But what about those in public offices, who claimed to be civil servants but are evil servants that have been diverting our resources to enrich their pockets?” Sunny Alex tweeted.
