A week after his last appearance at the Aso Rock Villa, suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, was at the Villa again yesterday to face the Presidential panel probing allegations of corruption against him.
Lawal is being investigated for allegedly influencing grass-cutting contract awards to companies he has interest in under the Presidential Initiative on the North East (PINE).
He was quizzed by the panel headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for about two hours before he left the Villa.
Unlike after his first appearance last Wednesday when his suspension was announced, Babachir did not speak to the press yesterday after he was done with the panel.
The panel also consists of the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno and the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
It had a day earlier also quizzed the suspended Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayodele Oke, over the N13 billion in foreign and local currencies found by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in a residential apartment at Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Oke, who appeared before the panel last Wednesday, had claimed that the stash of cash belonged to the NIA.
The committee is expected to submit its report by next week.
