ICPC To Investigate Hoarded COVID-19 Palliatives

 The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) says it will be investigating the rationale behind the storage of palliative materials in warehouses across the country which were supposed to be distributed to poor and vulnerable Nigerians.


In a statement released today October 27, the ICPC said that in view of the recent looting spree witnessed in some warehouses where the palliatives were hoarded, the commission will investigate the sources of goods looted from palliatives warehouses, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and private houses to unravel whether or not the properties looted were personally acquired, the government procured, CACOVID donated, or are empowerment materials which are part of the constituency projects initiative of the Federal Government. 


The statement adds that the commission will also scale up the monitoring of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) charged with the acquisition and distribution of COVID-19 palliative relief materials and make public its findings in due course.
