Mr. Oborevwori also diverted money allocated for the welfare of members of the house to his private bank account,
upon invitation by the EFCC, he bribed his way out from top-ranking officers of the agency to discredit
the authorization of the invitation.
Oborevwori also used Delta state money to bribed the anti-graft agencies to give him a semi soft landing,
Delta state money was lavished, waisted in billions by the common criminal who is a speaker of Delta state
house of Assembly.
The NGO also published evidence that Oborevwori is grossly guilty of tax evasion, “the sum of N77,201,250
calculated at five percent of the total vehicle purchase sum was claimed as VAT when in fact, no such amount was paid.”
The record shows that Oberewori is a thief, criminal and uneducated fellow who plotted Governor Okowa’s downfall but failed woefully.

Mrs. Iyna Aliya Ocholor (Clerk, Delta State House of Assembly) over fraud, abuse of office, and wanton looting
of the legislative treasury.’
