Olalekan Adetayo, Abuja
The suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, was on Tuesday quizzed by committee set up by President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate him and the suspended Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Ayo Oke.
Lawal appeared before the committee at a session that started at about 1pm.
The committee chaired by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo meets inside one of the conference rooms in the Vice-President’s office.
The panel was set up to investigate allegations of violations of law and due process made against Lawal in the award of contracts under the Presidential Initiative on the North East.
It is also Oke on the discovery of large amounts of foreign and local currencies by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in a residential apartment at Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos, for which NIA is laying claim.
Lawal was still with the committee members at press time.
Oke had taken his turn before the committee on Monday.
