The commission has concluded plans to invite the petitioner, Mr. Harrison Sawie, to explain details of his petition.
Sawie had in a petition dated 31st March 2017 submitted to the ICPC on 6th April, accused the Director, Mr. Habu of administrative impunity, physical molestation and harassment.
Sawie who is a staff of BIODEC, an offshoot of the National Biotechnology Development Agency (NABDA), also wrote separate letters to the Minister of Science and Technology Ogbonnaya Onu and the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun.
“Following the unwholesome, administrative impunity, physical molestation and harassment by Mr. Josiah Habu (Director of BIODEC Odi) there is threat on my life and my appointment as a staff of Bioresources Development Centre, Odi under National Biotechnology Development Agency (NABDA), Federal Ministry of Science and Technology.”
“I wish to bring to your attention that the said man has been under investigation at the EFCC Portharcourt for financial misappropriation of government funds ranging from unjust slashing of salaries, non-payment of staff allowances and arrears, and fictitious execution of contracts — upon this, the affected staff petitioned the financial atrocities and administrative impunity of Mr. Josiah Habu and his cohorts, has lead to personal threat to my life.”
