I’m Not Hiding From The Law - Jonah Jang To ICPC

The immediate past governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, has responded to a statement by the anti-graft agency (ICPC) that he has refused to appear before the agency.
The spokesperson of the ICPC, Rasheedat Okoduwa, in a statement on Wednesday explained why the current senator was being sought.
“Evidence before the ICPC so far indicates that Sen. Jang allegedly committed the offences in March, 2015.
“He allegedly received N2 billion in cash illegally out of the money which was allocated to Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), under the pretext of a loan to be spent on ‘classified expenditure’.”
The spokesperson also said Mr. Jang refused to honour the ICPC’s invitation.
“ICPC has sent several invitations to Jang through both the Senate President and the Clerk of the National Assembly to come and clear his name but he has refused to honour the invitations.
“Also, efforts to procure an arrest warrant from two different Magistrates’ Courts in the Federal Capital Territory have been futile. The magistrates declined to sign them even after the requisite sworn affidavit had been presented by the commission.
“In the light of the foregoing, the commission may have no other option than to declare the former governor wanted,’’ Mrs. Okoduwa said.
In response, the media consultant to the former governor, Clinton Garuba, on Thursday said Mr. Jang ”has no appointment with ICPC”.
“The attention of the Senator representing Plateau North Senatorial Zone in the National Assembly, Senator Jonah David Jang has been drawn to publications on some national dailies including the Vanguard news paper indicating that the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) have declared him wanted for allegedly refusing to honour its invitations,” the spokesman said.
