KanyiDaily recalled in October 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered a forensic audit of the NDDC’s activities from 2001 to 2019, saying he doesn’t know where all the money invested in the commission had gone.

The IMC set up to manage the commission for the time being and supervise the audit, had come under serious allegations bordering on mismanagement of funds.

Reacting to the National Assembly’s probe of NDDC IMC over the alleged misappropriation of funds, Asari Dokubo described the alleged N81bn theft as mere pickpocketing compared to what Nigerians from other regions “are stealing” in Niger Delta.

The former Niger Delta warlord likened the probe to running after pickpockets and leaving armed robbers that came to his house. He said:

“We are talking about N81 billion being pick-pocketed from Niger Delta while the bulk of our money, our resources are being carted away and we are not talking.

“They want me to run after pickpocketers and leave armed robbers that are coming into my house. When they talk about Akpabio, tell them about Malami, when they talk about Joy, tell them about Sadiya, when they talk about any senator, tell them about Magu.”

Meanwhile, the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio named four Nigerian lawmakers who allegedly got contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
