The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission has said it will discontinue cases found out to be outside its jurisdiction or already being handled by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission.

The Chairman of the ICPC, Prof Bolaji Owasanoye, said the move was aimed at avoiding conflict with other anti-corruption agencies.

He said the commission had received petitions that are outside its jurisdiction.

According to him, the ICPC and EFCC are not competing with each other as they were both established by the government to fight corruption.

He said, “A lot of things that don’t have to do with us are sent to us. We need to stop the practice of jumping everywhere for whatever reason.

“This can distract the agency from its primary objectives. We are not in a competition with the EFCC because we are both independent bodies fighting corruption. We cannot go after the same cases at the same time; it is duplication of effort and a waste of resources.”

Spokesperson for the commission, Rasheedat Okoduwa, told our correspondent in Abuja on Friday that the body would not work on any petition being handled by the EFCC.

She said, “There is a new petition format with guidelines on the kind of petition we treat on our website.”
