ICPC Invites Civil Servant Who Accused Perm Sec Of Harassment


- Advertisment -

Mrs Simisola Fajemirokun Ajayi, the employee of the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has been invited by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for interrogation over a probe into alleged graft.

Ajayi who is married made news last week after she accused Ibrahim Lamuwa, the permanent secretary of the ministry, of s3xual harassment.

It was reported that the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar, had written a letter to the Head of service of the federation, Folasade Yemi-Esan, alerting her about the “persisting” allegations of s3xual harassment against Lamuwa.

In a letter dated May 27, Tuggar said he felt it was necessary to write Esan following the “gravity of the matter”. Ajayi, through Femi Falana, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), had informed Tuggar of Lamuwa’s alleged s3xual advances.

Lamuwa has since denied the allegation, claiming that he turned down Ajayi’s request to pay her bills during an overseas trip.

However, in a new twist to the saga, the ICPC has invited Ajayi to appear at its headquarters in Abuja on Thursday, June 14 for an “interview”.

In a letter of invitation dated June 11 addressed to the minister of foreign affairs, the commission said it is “investigating an alleged violation of provisions of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000 and it has become imperative to have recourse to your office”.

“In view of the above, pursuant to section 28 and 40 of the said Act, you are kindly requested to release and direct Mrs Simisola Fajemirokun Ajayi of the ministry to appear for an interview before the undersigned at the Commission’s headquarters, Abuja, on Friday 14th June, 2024 at 1100 hours
,” the letter reads in part

The letter, which was signed by S. Yahaya, acting director of information at the ICPC, did not give details of the violated act for which Ajayi was invited.
