Alleged Age Falsification: ICPC arraigns ex-Border Agency boss




Former Acting Executive Secretary of the Border Communities Development Agency (BCDA), Mrs. Victoria Olutayo Odumosu, has been arraigned by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for age falsification.

 The high court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) arraigned Mrs. Odumosu before Justice Olasumbo O. Goodluck on a five-count charge bordering on conferring corrupt advantage upon himself as  a public officer to keep herself in public service beyond the statutory retirement age.
Mrs. Odumosu reportedly changed her date of birth on the agency’c nominal roll from  6th July, 1956 to 6th July, 1960, when she was made the head of Human Resources Department, which is contrary to  Section 19 of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000.
The case was discovered by ICPC after carrying out an investigation into allegations contained in a petition against the accused person.
However, Mrs. Odumosu pleaded not guilty to all the charges pressed against her when they were riled out to her. Counsel to the defendant, Sayo J. Odumosu, through a written application, sought the relief of the court to grant his client bail.
The case was to Friday 19th October, 2018 for bail hearing, while the suspect has been remanded in ICPC custody.
