Former SGF, Babachir Lawal, released from EFCC custody

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has released former Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Babachir Lawal.

 

The former SGF was arrested and detained on Wednesday January 24th over his alleged involvement in a N200 million IDP scam.

 

An investigative panel chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, last year, found Babachir guilty of using his office as the chairman of the Presidential Initiative on the North East PINE, to corner a N200 million contract to clear grasses at IDP camps. President Buhari sacked him on October 30th.

 

A source in the antigraft agency says Babachir was granted administrative bail on Friday night.
