I was not arrested by ICPC -NDDC MD

Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NNDC), Mr. Chibuzor Ugwuoha has debunked reports that he was arrested and detained by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

Reacting to a newspaper publication (not Daily Sun), Mr. Ugwuoha said that at no time was he detained by the anti-corruption outfit. The NDDC boss who spoke in Port Harcourt through his Special Assistant (Media), Mr. Abraham Ogbodo, said he merely honoured an invitation by the ICPC and left the same day. In the words of Mr. Ogbodo, “He (Ugwuoha) was invited like the ICPC can invite anybody. He was never arrested and detained. None of that took place”.

He recalled that the Managing Director had travelled to Lagos for a Conference on Corporate Social responsibility after which he flew to Abuja for an official engagement and later called at the ICPC on the latter’s invitation
