I want quick investigation so Dogara and others can be prosecuted and if found guilty sent to jail- Jibrin

After submitting his petition at ICPC headquarters against Speaker Yakubu Dogara, three principal officers of the House of Representatives and nine chairmen of different committees in the House, Abdulmumin Jibrin told newsmen that he hopes to see quick investigations into the matter so that the people he indicted can be investigated and sent to jail if found guilty.
“I am here to submit a formal petition and give further clarification and insights on allegations of corruption abuse of trust and office by Mr speaker Yakubu Dogara, the deputy speaker of house, Yusuf Lasun, the whip of the house, Alhassan Doguwa and the minority leader of the house Leo Ogor and nine other members of the House who are also chairmen of different other committees. We have submitted the petition. The chairman of the commission received us in person and we exchanged a couple of ideas on how to move forward. I hope to see a very quick commencement of investigation so that these corrupt set of Nigerians can be prosecuted in earnest and if found guilty sent to jail immediately so that it will send a very powerful signal of the anti-corruption fight of this government.”he said
