The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC on Saturday, said no files were incriminating the President, Bola Tinubu, and some of his close aides in any of its offices across the country.
The commission was reacting to a report that the Department for State Services, DSS stormed one of the commission’s offices and carted away files implicating the president and his close aides.
In a statement , ICPC’s spokesperson, Azuka Ogugua, described the report as unfounded, urging Nigerians to disregard it.

The statement read, “The attention of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission has been drawn to a spurious news report by an online media, titled “Secret Police, DSS Carts Away Files Implicating President Tinubu, Close Aides from ICPC, CCB”.
“The Commission hereby refutes the report and states unequivocally that there were no files implicating President Tinubu or close aides at its headquarters or offices across the states. Therefore, the alleged carting away of such imaginary files is unfounded and should be disregarded by the public.
“While the Commission does not dispute the role of the media to inform the public, it is deeply disturbed by irresponsible practice and non-adherence to the tenets of the journalism profession by some media outlets.”
