Following  the controversy trailing his citizenship, the  head of Liberia’s anti-corruption commission, Ndubusi Nwabudike has resigned, the government said on Tuesday, amid allegations that he obtained his citizenship of the West African state illegally.

There are reports that he hails from Delta State.

However, political opponents of the footballer-turned-president began to question whether Nwabudike obtained his citizenship legally after Weah nominated him as chairman of the anti-graft commission last year.
