Sen Uzodinma to Report Before SPIP over Alleged $12m Fraud

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, is expected to appear before the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property tomorrow.

Uzodinma is wanted to answer questions bordering on alleged failure by his company to execute a contract of 12 million dollars for the dredging of the Calabar channel.

The contract was said to have been awarded by the Nigerian Ports Authority, which reported the alleged fraud to the presidency.

The senator representing Imo West senatorial district, was allegedly arrested on Sunday night at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, on arrival from Lagos. He was, however, released shortly after, on health grounds.

According to the chairman of the panel, Okoi Obono-Obla, Senator Uzodinma had been evading arrest for about a year until his arrest yesterday.
