ICPC To Question Suspended SEC DG On Monday
The suspended Director General of Securities and Exchange Commission, Mounir Gwarzo has questions to answer in high places.
But he will start on Monday from the office of the anti-graft agency, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC.
Recall that the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, had on Wednesday suspended Gwarzo and two other officials of the commission for alleged involvement in corrupt practices.
Adeosun, who also set up an Administrative Panel of Inquiry to probe the allegations, directed Gwarzo to hand over the affairs of the commission to the most senior director while he proceeds on suspension.

The letter, signed by the Head of Department, Investigations, ICPC, Adedayo Kayode, was addressed to the acting DG of SEC asking him to inform Gwarzo to appear on Monday.
“The commission (ICPC) is investigating a case that borders on alleged violation of the provision of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000.
“In view of the above and pursuant to Section 28 of the said Act, you are requested to inform Mr. Mounir Gwarzo to appear before the undersigned for the purpose of interview on Monday, 4th of December 2017 at the commission’s headquarters, Abuja by 2pm prompt,” the ICPC letter to the now acting DG of SEC read.
