TICKER: Matter in limbo? $620,000 bribery scandal: Lawan reports to police again

For the third time in one week, embattled former fuel subsidy regime ad hoc committee chairman, Farouk Lawan, on Thursday, reported to the Force Headquarters.

This is one of the bail conditions, granted Farouk, at the heat of the bribery scandal.

Petroleum mogul, Femi Otedola, had in his petition to the Inspector General of Police, M.D. Abubakar, alleged that Farouk demanded the sum of $3 million from him, so that his company’s name could be removed among the indicted oil companies.

However, the agreement went sour when Lawan and the secretary to the ad hoc committee, Boniface Emenalo, collected the some of $620,000 while the episode was recorded.

Farouk, who was accompanied by one of his aides, was dressed in white caftan, a black shoe and cap and arrived at the Force headquarters at about 2.20p.m. on Tuesday.

He later signed the register of his reporting at the Force headquarters.

This is the third time he would be reporting to the police since his return from lesser hajj last week.

He was earlier denied the opportunity of travelling but with the intervention of authorities, he was eventually allowed to travel to Mecca.
