Sir Chukwuma Not Arrested, Detained By ICPC – Aide

Mr Obi Chukwuemeka, the Media Assistant to Sir Paul Chukwuma, has debunked reports making the rounds on social media that his principal has been arrested and detained by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

In a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday in Abuja, he maintained that Fides et Ratio, a company founded by Sir Paul Chukwuma, would continue to adhere to the regulatory provisions of the ICPC

He said: “Our attention has been drawn to a false report circulating on Anambra social media platforms and other news outlets, alleging that Sir Paul Chukwuma is being detained by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC). We wish to state categorically that this report is entirely false.

“Sir Paul Chukwuma is currently at work in his office and is not in detention. Fides et Ratio, founded by Sir Paul Chukwuma, has always complied with contractual obligations and adhered to the principles of accountability and transparency.

“The ICPC has the mandate to supervise contractual requirements and request documents to ensure compliance. Once requested, every law-abiding company is required to comply with the agency’s request and provide requested documentation.

“Fides et Ratio will continue to collaborate with the ICPC to demonstrate adherence to regulatory provisions, as the company is built on transparency and respect for the law.

“We urge the general public to disregard any further misleading publications.”
