The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other-Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has said it would investigate corruption allegation against the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole.

Okoduwa said the body would have to verify if a petition has been written against the former Edo State governor.

She said: “First of all, we will verify whether, indeed, he has a petition against him, and from there, we will look at what they are complaining about.

“Then, the next step is to investigate the petition and see whether there is anything worthy of investigating in the matter.

“It goes through our normal processes. But let me just sound a note of caution. We receive petitions virtually every hour. So, the petitions are like queuing up and had to be addressed in the sequences they come.

“So, if a petition comes right now, you don’t expect it to be investigated before all others before it.

“We thank you for bringing us the petition and you have done the right thing by going through the process of submitting your petition. I think you have already done what you needed to do.”
