The House of Representatives has issued a warrant of arrest against the acting Managing Director of Interim Management Committee, IMC, of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Prof. Kemebradikumo Pondei for staging a walk out on them.

Recall that Mr Pondei who is being investigated over an alleged N40 billion irregular expenditure, had stormed out of the hearing on Thursday in Abuja.

The embattled NDDC boss had also accused the Chairman of the committee Rep. Olubumi Tunji-Ojo, of corruption.

Addressing the committee, Mr Pondei said: “We in the NDDC is not comfortable with the Chairman of this committee, presiding over a matter.

“He is an accused party, the NDDC has over time accused Rep. Olubumi Tunji-Ojo of different crimes against the NDDC and he has responded in the press.

“He is an intrested party and we do not believe that the NDDC can have justice because he cannot seat on his own case.

“We have no issue of appearing, we appeared before the Senate ad hoc committee and as long as he reminds, we will not make any presentation,” he said.
