FG charges Ekweremade, Sen. Akpan over alleged non declaration of assets

The Federal Government has charged the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and Senator Bassey Akpan, representing Akwa-Ibom North-East Senatorial District, with offences bordering on alleged refusal and negligence to declare their assets to the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property.

Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court in Abuja, ordered that the charges and other accompanying papers be served on the two of them through the Clerk of the National Assembly.

The judge, after granting the orders for service through substituted means, fixed October twenty-two for the next hearing date in respect of Senator Ekweremadu’s case and November nineteen for Senator Akpan’s case.

The Okoi Obono-Obla-led Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property, filed the two separate criminal suits containing two counts each against the senators on behalf of the Federal Government.
