CCT finds ex-minister Orubebe guilty of false declaration of assets

Godsday Orubebe
 
The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has found former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe guilty of false declaration of assets.
 
The judgment was delivered by Tribunal chairman, Danladi Umar on Tuesday, October 4, 2016.
 
“I hereby seize, on behalf of the federal government, the property known as plot 2057,” Danladi held.
 
“The prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt, and all evidence tendered are admitted,” he added.
 
Orubebe had been charged with the offence after being accused by the federal government. The former minister made headlines in 2015 for his dramatic outburst during the collation of presidential election results.
 
Orubebe refused to release the microphone he was holding and accused the former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Attahiru Jega of bias.
 
A later report alleged that Orubebe’s act was part of a plan to abduct Jega to keep him from declaring President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the elections.
