They are out to humiliate me – Obono-Obla cries out

The former chairman of the Special Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property (SPIP), Okoi Obono-Obla, said that some unidentified people haunt him.

Writing on his Facebook page, Obono-Obla said that even those who stole billions and helped ruin the economy did not receive the treatment he was given.

“What are these people after me for? They took their job away, yet they are not done! They smeared me in the media, they framed me! They lied against me!

“They declared me wanted! What offence have I committed? Even those who have stolen billions or contributed to the wrecking of the national economy are not treated with such indignities.

“Those who have corruptly enriched themselves! They just want to humiliate me! They want to break me! They want to demonize me before Nigerians! I am a true patriot of Nigeria!

“I did my job with utmost dedication, dignity, integrity and commitment! God and history shall always vindicate the just! Nelson Mandela was persecuted, prosecuted, dehumanized and imprisoned for 27 years but he became a world icon!” Obono-Obla wrote.

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) recently declared Obono-Obla wanted, saying he refused to honour its invitation after a series of allegations on abuse of office, falsification of academic records, living above his income and collection of gratification from suspects under his investigation.
