Onyeka Onwenu Finally Reports At ICPC, Granted Bail.

The director-general of the National Centre for Women Development (NCWD), Onyeka Onwenu, has finally honoured the invitation of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) over the alleged N17million contract bribe and was granted administrative bail.
According to a reliable source at the ICPC office, the NCWD DG appeared before the anti-graft agency on Monday and after answering some questions, she was allowed to go home on recognition, while investigation into the alleged bribe continues.
The source, however, would not confirm the outcome of the investigation on whether the renowned songstress was indicted or not but promised to make the matter public when the need arises.
The NCWD boss had declined to appear to before the anti-corruption agency when invited last week, claiming that she had to attend to her health first.
Other key persons interrogated on the issue include Mukhtar Usman, Jauro Jibrin and Sadeeq Umar, who were all released pending the conclusion of the investigation.
Onwenu is being interrogated after her personal assistant, Chika Abazu, who was on July 10 arraigned before a Federal Capital Territory High Court on a six-count charge of bribery and gratification, was involved in a N17 million bribery allegation.
Though Abazu pleaded not guilty to the charges, he was denied bail and ordered to be remanded at the Federal Prisons, Kuje, until the case is dispensed with and the presiding judge, Justice Chukwu Ndukwe, adjourned the case till September 28 for trial to commence.
