A former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Maurice Iwu has been allegedly involved in the controversial N23.26 billion bribe for 2015 election result, the Ripples Nigeria says.
According to Ripples Nigeria, the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have launched a manhunt for the former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Maurice Iwu over complicity in the alleged N23.29b poll bribery scandal, Ripples Nigeria gathered.
A source at the EFCC, who confirmed this Thursday night, said Iwu reportedly facilitated the sharing of the slush funds, in which he also benefitted.
Ripples Nigeria gathered that the EFCC has been on his trail in the last two weeks but was said to be evading arrest.
A highly placed source said: “We have watch-listed the former INEC chief in the last two weeks but he has been evading arrest.
“Our operatives are still looking for him. So, we have launched a manhunt and put other security agencies on the alert.
“He is wanted in connection with the N23.29 poll bribery scam perpetrated by a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke.”
