Human and Environmental Development Agenda, (HEDA) a non governmental organisation has called on Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences (ICPC) Nigeria to conduct a thorough investigation into the tenure of the former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, over several allegations of corruption and abuse of office against him.

In a four-page petition document signed by HEDA’s chairman, Olanrewaju Suraju, and issued as a statement on Sunday, HEDA decried the lack of any investigation or report by anti-corruption agencies of some allegations as conveyed by media reports and documentary evidence in total disregard for the rule of law while Mr Malami was Minister of Justice.
HEDA, in its petition, which was copied to the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, also cited several corruption allegations against Mr Malami.
The Anti-corruption group mentioned ten alleged corrupt practices connected to his name, including distributing 30 cars worth over N1 billion as gifts to his supporters in Kebbi State.
The group is also asking the anti-corruption agency to investigate the returns of looted funds of $78 million to Nigeria and how his office instituted cases on behalf of Nigeria in Italy and the United Kingdom against the same suspects.
