THIS is a trying time for Mr. Chibuzor Ugwoha, the Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC and 10 other top management staff of the agency presently being investigated by the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC for allegedly siphoning about N130 Billion meant for development projects in the Niger Delta area. In view of this, a militant group is allegedly threatening the life of the agency’s boss.
Others allegedly listed for attack
Findings by Nigeria Standard confirmed that others listed for attack by the militants include: Dornu Kogan S.A Legal/Admin, Aham aka dollar S.A Finance Barrister Kaltungo Moljiego, Head due process George Alabo, Ihuoma PA, Gender Ailine legal Dept, Mfon Daniel Manager Procurement unit, Engr Anyakwo of UIDW Department, Engr. Dappa Technical adviser and Mrs Solomon UIDW.
The group in a letter signed by one General Mgbolo Atawo sent to the State Security Service (SSS), the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Chairman of the Economic and Financial crimes Commission, (EFCC), ICPC and the Secretary to the Federal Government it warned that it can no longer condone the monumental fraud going on in the NDDC.
Nigeria Standard observed that the militant group allegedly claimed that while contracts in the agency were unduly inflated, 60 per cent of the companies enjoying contract awards from the agency are owned by senior staff of the NDDC.
