Gloria Obioma Elih

The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission on Tuesday declared a former staff member, Gloria Obioma Elih, wanted.

The staff, Elih, 44, was declared wanted by the anti-corruption agency over her refusal to accept court service after she was allegedly caught demanding a bribe to stop an investigation.

ICPC, in a notice, said criminal charges were filed against her but she had been dodging the commission from serving her court summons.

According to the ICPC notice, “The person whose picture appears above, Gloria Obioma Elih, is hereby declared wanted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission.

“Elih is declared wanted as all efforts to serve her and procure her attendance in court have proved abortive.

“She is an indigene of Anambra State and speaks English and Igbo languages fluently. She is 44 years old and dark in complexion.

“Her last known address is El-Salem Estate in Lugbe, Abuja.
