Four immigration officers have been arrested by Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offenses Commission for allegedly involved in corrupt practices.
The four officers whose names are; Adeda Retty, Abimbola Louis, Eboji Ngozi, and Okunda Olawale -were arrested for allegedly receiving gratification and purchasing proceeds of crime.
The anti-corrupt agency said in the statement released that, "While Adeda, Abimbola, Eboji and Okunda were at the time of the arrest in possession of seven cartons of frozen fish which were believed to be proceeds of gratification collected from a vessel flying a Panama Flag and carrying a cargo of fish which berthed at the Port, the fifth suspect, Agazuwu, was responsible for buying the frozen fish from the officers.
"The commission in its fight against corrupt practices will from time to time strategically conduct similar operations to sanitize the ports of corrupt elements impacting negatively on international trade, and undermining the efforts of the Federal Government to ensure ease of doing business in the sector," the ICPC said.
ICPC added that an investigation will be made and necessary action will be taken against the culprits.
