Maimuna Aliyu, the rejected nominee to the Board of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, has been charged to court for corruption.
A three-count charge of abuse of office, misappropriation of public funds, and criminal breach of trust, was slammed against her on August 15, by the ICPC.
On August 1, Aliyu, a former Executive Director of Aso Savings and Loans Plc, was announced as a nominee to the ICPC board, as part of 36 appointments made by Yemi Osinbajo, the then Acting President.
Recall, that Aliyu alongside Sa’ad Alanamu, another ICPC board appointee, were being investigated by the Commission, for alleged corruption in the region of N1billion.
While Alanamu was being investigated on corruption charges allegedly committed while he headed several institutions in Kwara State, Aliyu has had a longstanding case of abuse of office, misappropriation, and diversion of public funds against her.
Charges were already being prepared against her by the ICPC, in preparation to taking her to court, when her name was announced as a member of the new board of the Commission.
The charges against her, according to court documents, read:
