The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) yesterday arrested two top government officials over allegations of corruption.
A grey Toyota camry car was sighted conveying the arrested officials driving into the premises of the ICPC headquarters yesterday, and the ICPC officers quickly moved the men, who were both handcuffed together, into the cell.
All efforts to find out who the arrested officials were proved abortive as the two men, who were wearing black and grey suits, were shaded from security operatives at the gate and at the reception, while the men shaded their faces with their other hands.
Upon inquiry, the ICPC officers refused to comment on the identities of the arrested men and the nature of their crime.
However, one of the officers, who pleaded anonymity, said that they were among some top government officials, who had fraudulently converted public funds to their personal use.
