The immediate past secretary of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), Mr. Amaechi Akawu, has been arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), over allegations of misappropriation of $130, 000 belonging to the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF).

ICPC Spokesperson, Rasheedat Okoduwa in a statement yesterday in Abuja disclosed that Akawu was detained on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 following his arrest and was subsequently released on administrative bail the next day, to enable him to submit some vital documents that were requested by investigators handling the case.

According to Okoduwa, the commission had received a petition alleging that he had failed to account for $130,000 mistakenly paid into the account of AFN in 2017 by IAAF.
