Osinbajo disclosed  this to  State House correspondents after submitting the report of the investigation to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The commmitte headed by Osinbajo, has  the National Security Adviser, General Babagana Monguno (rtd) and the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, as members.
President Muhammadu Buhari had on April 19, suspended Babachir and Oke and set up the three-man committee to investigate alleged infractions against both officials within a period of two weeks.
Babachir was investigated for allegedly awarding millions of naira contracts to a company in which he had interest, Global Vision Limited, under the Presidential Initiative on the North East (PINE).
While Oke was probed for alleged $43.4 million  cash discovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in an apartment located at 7B  Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos.
