An aggrieved former aide to Hon. Monday Igbuya the Former Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly who was impeached this year has defied all odds to boldly accuse his former boss of defrauding him to the tune of over 9 million Naira while he was the House Majority Leader. Mr. Frank Itua Abiodun who was a legislative aide to the impeached former speaker recently petitioned the EFCC on how his former boss lured him into giving him his monthly salary and allowances for over 3 years under the guise of helping him save for the purpose of furthering his studies abroad.
In his petition to EFCC made available to Secret Reporters, Mr Frank stated:”When I received the first payment in 2012, Hon. Monday Igbuya whom I took as a father called me to his house at Sapele and advised me to save my monies very well. He insisted that he would help keep the monies for me until the end of his tenure wherein he will hand over the entire money to me to enable me travel out of Nigeria for further studies”
Following investigation made by Secret Reporters, the aide earned the sum of N256,000 (two hundred and fifty six thousand) monthly as salary as a legislative assistant, plus allowances. At the end of each month, upon receiving his salary he was deceitfully compelled by the former speaker to keep the sum of N30,000 (thirty thousand naira) to himself and pay in the remaining amount to his personal account. He reportedly paid the sum of N226,000 (two hundred and twenty six thousand naira) monthly for three consecutive years into the devious former speaker’s GT Bank account number 0032375304 and other accounts provided he provided with relevant bank tellers of the transactions made available to us, totaling N2,712,000 annually and N8,136,000 for the duration of three years.
At the expiration of the Hon. Monday Igbuya’s term as a House Member in 2015, Mr Frank made a request for his money but was vehemently denied by the mischievous and fraudulent Igbuya who suddenly became evasive and refused taking his calls.
Secret Reporters also gathered from the former Aide that the nefarious impeached speaker regularly boasts of being untouchable by any individual, group or government agency at the state and federal level.
He has been invited by the EFCC according to our insider sources, but boasted that he will buy off the Port Harcourt Zonal Head to kill the case.
All efforts made to reach the perfidious Hon. Monday Igbuya proved abortive as he declined taking calls on his two phone lines 08033027091 and 08023361401 and didn’t respond to numerous text messages sent to both lines by our reporter.
