Pandemonium, panic and confusion as engulfed Niger Deltans and Nigerians following the sudden demise of Acting Executive Director of Finance and Administration of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mr Ibang Etang at the wee hours of today.
Etang, according to sources, died possibly from heart-attack, but it could not be ascertained if his death was also COVID-19 related or other sources.
The Liberator Newspaper earlier reported that, the House of Representatives is to launch a probe into the alleged mismanagement of funds and other unwholesome practices in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and has summoned the Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Godswill Akpabio and members of the new Interim Management Committee.
The House also mandated its Committee on NDDC to investigate all issues relating to misapplication and misappropriation of funds, especially N40bn spent under two months by the Commission and report back to the House and the deceased finance director of the commision, Mr. Etang was to appear before the house to clear the country on the bogus financial misappropriation allegations hoovering around the NDDC.
This is a developing story, more details later……….
