Atikugate: Keyamo Sues Atiku, CCB, ICPC, EFCC

He made the announcement on Friday stating that Atiku was sued alongside the Economic and Financial Crime Commison, EFCC, Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC for their failures to arrest and prosecute Atiku for corruption.

This followed the expiration of the 72-hour ultimatum he issued calling on the EFCC, ICPC and CCB to immediately arrest and prosecute Atiku for indulging in “open corruption” as alleged by the former Vice President ‘s media aide, Michael Achimugu.

Achimugu had revealed how Atiku used his privileged position to siphon public funds when he was vice president.

The camp of the former Vice President denied any wrong doing and termed it “blackmail” induced by political rivals.

The APC campaign council, PCC, also rose from its press conference where it called on Atiku to step down from the presidential race following the allegation.

It also called on the relevant agencies to ensure Atiku was arrested and prosecuted.

In his affidavit of claim which he deposed to at the federal high court Abuja on Friday, Keyamo is seeking a declaration of the court that Atiku, “is under a legal obligation to make available to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Defendants, for the purpose of aiding their investigation, information available to him in respect of a certain bank account belonging to a company named Marine Float and other accounts of two undisclosed companies, which information he disclosed to a certain close aide of his called Michael Achimugu, as to how the said accounts were used as a: Special Purpose Vehicles’ to secretly divert and misappropriate public funds between 1999 and 2007 when the 1st Defendant served as Vice President of Nigeria;
