#FaroukLawan: At last, Lawan submits himself to the police

by Stanley Azuakola

Hon Farouk Lawan, the man who has made all the headlines this week, finally showed up at the Police Force Headquarters today. At the Louis Edet House, he was grilled by the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mohammed Abubakar, and three Commissioners of Police over his role in the $620,000 bribery saga.

This is coming less than 24 hours to the emergency session convened by the House of Representatives to discuss the matter, and 24 hours after Femi Otedola appeared before the Police Special task Force himself.

It would be recalled that Femi Otedola, one of Nigeria’s richest men had publicly accused Hon Farouk Lawan and Boniface Emenalo, the secretary of the fuel subsidy committee Lawan chaired, of demanding and receiving $620,000 bribe from him.

Lawan, who first denied the charges, finally accepted that he did collect the money from Otedola, but only did so in order to use as evidence against the business mogul.

Lawan arrived at the Force Headquarters, Abuja at 4p.m and was immediately ushered into the IG’s office. Leading the interrogation today, was the head of the IG’s Special Task force on the matter, Ali Ahmadu, a commissioner of police.

The police had threatened to declare Lawan wanted after he failed to honour its invitation to appear before it since Monday.

More details to follow.

  7. D eyez & earz of the good people of Nigeria r wide open to see n hear how diz whole scandalous drama turnz out; we hope dat dis markz the genesis of a healthy & curruption free Nigeria!

    But it will be of the country'z great interest if the jst submitted fuel subsidy report is not swept under d carpet; but rather carryout due justice on anyone found wanting(when I said anyone, I mean anybody, irrespective of personnal status-not even Mr. President if involved should not be spared)
