Three polytechnic rectors and the secretary of the Committee of the Federal Polytechnic Rectors (COFER) Ayegba Godwin have been arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for being in possession of N10,250,000 cash believed to be bribe.

 

The spokesperson for the ICPC, Rasheedat Okoduwa, who confirmed the arrest said the suspects were picked up at the premises of the National Board for Technical Education after a whistle-blower contacted the commission over the alleged crime.

 

ICPC said: “They were arrested on the NABTE premises in Abuja through a sting operation by the commission.’’

 

The anti-corruption body noted that the suspects had been granted administrative bail, but would be arraigned as soon as the investigation was completed.
