Rodents May Have Eaten Osinbajo Panel Report On Suspended SGF – Shehu Sani
Shehu Sani, senator representing Kaduna central, says
rodents may have eaten the report of the panel which
probed Babachir Lawal, former secretary to the
government of the federation, and Ayo Oke, director-
general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).
Oke was suspended after his agency claimed
ownership of the monies discovered in an Ikoyi
apartment, while Lawal was asked to step aside over
his indictment for corruption by the senate committee
on the humanitarian crisis in the north-east.
The committee was chaired by Sani.
A panel headed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo was
subsequently set up to investigate the duo.
The panel, which had as its members, Abubakar
Malami, attorney-general of the federation, and
Babagana Monguno, national security adviser,
submitted its report to President Muhammadu Buhari
on August 23.
More than one month after the submission, nothing
has been heard, forcing Sani to ask if, like President
Muhammadu Buhari’s office, the panel report had also
been left at the mercy of rodents.
“Maybe the hard copy of the Veepee’s report was
eaten by rodents and the soft copy in the flash drive
was damaged by virus,” he tweeted on Friday.
May be the hard copy of the Veepee’s report
was eaten by rodents and the soft copy in the
flash drive was damaged by virus.
Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, had earlier
warned against the consequences of “sweeping the
panel report under the carpet.”
“May I advise, Your Excellency, that you should never
habour the view that this matter can swept under the
carpet for two reasons. One is that Nigerians are not
unmindful of the outcome of your investigation even if
it has not been officially released. Two is that should
you fail to release the report and act on it, I shall
approach the law court to compel you to do so,” he
had said in a letter he wrote to Osinbajo.
