A former Governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, said he would appear before the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission if properly invited for questioning because he was not on the run.

He also said contrary to reports published by some media organisations, he had not been invited by the commission and was “not declared wanted” as he had nothing to hide.

Jang, who is representing Plateau North Senatorial District in the National Assembly, in a statement by his media consultant, Clinton Garuba, said he had instructed his lawyers to proceed to court to protest against what he described as a media trial.

According to him, a man who recently honoured the invitation of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission extended to him by word of mouth could not be said to be avoiding an invitation by ICPC.

The statement said, “The attention of the senator representing Plateau North Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Jonah Jang, has been drawn to publications in some national dailies indicating that the ICPC has declared him wanted for allegedly refusing to honour its invitations.

“The development came to the senator as a rude shock, considering the fact that there has never been a time the commission invited him. All those who know the distinguished senator would attest to his willingness at all times to give an account of his time in office as the Governor of Plateau State between 2007 and 2015.”
