Abuja (Sundiata Post) — The Vice President Yemi Osinbajo-led Presidential Investigative Panel, on Wednesday, met again at the State House, Abuja.
The Wednesday meeting, according to reports, started around 6.45 p.m.
It had only members of the Committee, which include the National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno, and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, in attendance.
The Committee has the mandate to investigate allegations of violations of law and due process made against the suspended Secretary to the Government of Federation (SGF), David Babachir David Lawal, in the award of contracts under the Presidential Initiative on the North East (PINE).
The panel is also investigating the money linked to the suspended Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke, concerning the discovery of large amounts of foreign and local currencies by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in a residential apartment at Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos.
It was not clear, as at press time, if Oke or Lawal will appear later before the meeting would come to an end.
It was also not certain, if any private or other public officials have been linked to the investigation, as it had vowed to invite anyone uncovered.
A source privy to the meeting, however disclosed that the meeting was to review what the Panel has gathered from the investigation so far.
The Committee is expected to submit its report by next week.
President Muhammadu Buhari had, last week Wednesday, set up a three-man committee with membership, including the NSA, Babagana Monguno, and the AGF and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
The Committee had grilled Oke, on Monday, for about 10 hours, while Lawal appeared before the Committee for about two hours, on Tuesday.
