Deputy senate president Ike Ekweremadu on Monday accused the ruling All Progressives Congress of using anti-corruption agencies to harass members of the opposition party.
Ekweremadu, a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, called on his party’s faithful not to be intimidated.
The federal government had last week asked the Federal High Court in Abuja to freeze undeclared assets traced to Ekweremadu.
The property were said to include two in London, eight in Dubai and three in the United States.
And a special presidential investigation panel for the recovery of public property filled an ex-parte motion for assets forfeiture.
But the lawmaker, in a statement on his Facebook page, said: “I will not be silenced or intimidated by the actions of the panel.”
