A Member of the Cross River State House of Assembly, (CRHA), Dr Mrs Itam Virginia Abang has failed in her bid to get the Federal High Court, Calabar to stop the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), from investigating her for alleged corrupt practices and abuse of office.

Dr. Abang, had filed for an injunction to restrain ICPC from investigating an allegation of receiving double salary simultaneously from both the Federal Government of Nigeria through the University of Calabar and the Cross River State Government through the state’s Rural Development Agency where she was holding an appointment as Director, Health Infrastructure.

In a ruling, Hon Justice I. E. Ekwo held that the Federal High Court lacked jurisdiction to entertain the suit and directed that the case be transferred to the High Court of Cross River State for hearing and determination.
