Others interogated along with him include three other officers of his Commission. They were the Chief Accountant, Bisala A.A, one Mr. Ibe E.C and his orderly, George Todonu.
The ICPC intergrogation is at the instance of a petition to the them by one Mr. Aaron Kaase also of the PCS.
In the petition Aaron Kaase claimed that Okiro has siphoned the said sum out of the N350 million obtained by the Commission from the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) to train the staff of PSC in the monitoring of the conduct of men and officers of the Nigeria Police during the last general elections.
Kaase said in his petition that Okiro siphoned the amount claiming he would train 500 staff in Abuja, 200 in Lagos and another 200 in Kano when the combined staff strength of the Commission nationwide is not more than 400.
He also stated that in Kano where 200 staff are supposed to be trained, the staff strength is merely 10. He also accused Okiro and his orderly, Todonu, of claiming millions of naira for separate overseas trainings, which they never attended.
