Revealed! Attorney-General, Adoke, Is Delaying Farouk Lawan’s Trial
“Since we concluded investigations and sent the case file to the Attorney-General, we have yet to hear from them; even the government-appointed prosecutor has yet to get back to us on his plans and we are therefore surprised to read that we interrogated Lawan and Emenalo when we have concluded investigations. We’re only waiting for the suspects to be taken to court.”
It is surprising to hear that Police have not yet received legal directive from the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation in respect of the investigation into the $620,000 bribery scandal involving former Chairman, House Committee on Fuel Subsidy Management probe, Farouk Lawan, and Chairman, Zenon Oil & Gas, Femi Otedola.
Also, contrary to a report that the duo of Lawan and Boniface Emenalo were interrogated by the STF on Wednesday, a police source said no such thing happened.
A source in the Special Task Force that investigated the bribery scandal disclosed that the STF had not got any report from the AGF or the Director of Public Prosecution since the case file was sent to the AGF after the completion of its probe.The source added that the investigating team is waiting to hear from the government and Chief Gbenga Awomolo, the prosecutor hired by them (FG) to prosecute the matter before any action could be taken against Farouk.
