Former Delta poly Rector, Sogbaike, Nana, Omonode others arrested by Presidential Panel On Recovery


All seems not to be well with the immediate past Rector of Delta State Polytechnic, Oghara, Clara Sogbaike and top management staff  if the information at our disposal is anything to go by.

Dependable sources show that the fight against corruption by President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government received boost as The Special Presidential Panel On Recovery of Public Property headed by Chief Obono Obla Okoi on Thursday March 21st, 2019,

following the arrest of the immediate past Rector of Delta State Polytechnic, Oghara, Clara Sogbaike and other Principal Officers of the Polytechnic over alleged fraud of N3 billion and other corrupt practices.

Our Abuja correspondents who were at the Asokoro office of the Presidential Panel in Abuja gathered from reliable sources within the Panel, that the suspects have been under investigation by the Presidential Panel since December 2017 and had been evading investigation by refusing to honour the Panel’s several invitations until their arrest on March 21st 2019.

Our medium gathered that, amongst those arrested were the former Deputy Rector of Delta State Poly Oghara, Mr. Nana Joseph, the Bursar, Mr. Napoleon Akpubi, the Registrar, Benson Omonode, the former Director of Projects, Engr. Dickson Eghwatore and Oluwatobi Sogbaike, a staff of the Polytechnic and also a son to the former Rector, Clara Sogbaike.

Investigations by our correspondents revealed that the petitioner who was a former Staff of the Polytechnic, Mr. Ovie Frank and he was sighted entering into the premises of the Special Presidential Panel, after which our correspondents were informed by a very reliable source that the petitioner and the suspects were in a closed doors interview with the Director of Operations of The Special Presidential Investigation Panel which took over two weeks where the suspects were said to have developed phobia.

 Efforts by one of our correspondents to get details of the closed doors interrogations was unsuccessful,  but sources within told our correspondent that after much interrogations,  the former Rector pleaded for mercy as the petitioner was her former Staff who was sacked for sexual harassment but decided to petition her and other top management staff of the Polytechnic as a pay back.

A source who did not want his name on print, did not give details but only said that full investigation has been ordered into the case of fraud against the suspects by the Special Presidential Investigation Panel.
