The ‘EFCC’ Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is fully set to indict Daura Lawal, the just DSS Boss, for investigations concerning the alleged N17 billion scam that occurred while he was in office.
EFCC Set To Grill Lawal Daura Over 17Billion Scam:
Daura, who was sacked by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo following the siege to the National Assembly by DSS operatives on Tuesday, August 7th, is currently being interrogated by the police.
According to reports, the EFCC who spoke with Daily Trust correspondence, operatives of the anti-graft agency on Tuesday evening visited the police facility at Guzape Abuja where Daura was being held preparatory to receiving him.
“It is, however, expected that the former DSS boss would be handed over to the EFCC further interrogation to explain how the N17 billion traced to the headquarters of the DSS was utilised.”
The source said the money was handed over to Duara, by his predecessor Ita Ekpeyong.
It has been proven that Ekpeyong received N20 billion from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) at the end of former President Jonathan’s led administration.
Ekpeyong, however, allegedly converted N17 Billion into US Dollars, which was handed over to Lawal Daura.
EFCC investigators allegedly traced the money as a fall out of the $43 billion linked to the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) stashed at a private residence inside Osborne Towers in Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria.
According to EFCC, the commission has been working on this investigation that has indicted the DSS Boss, but that the study was frustrated by Daura while in office as head of DSS.
DSS agents, on the orders of Daura, has prevented EFCC agents from arresting Ita Ekpeyong and sacked DG of NIA Ayo Oke on November 21, 2017, to obstruct the investigation, I guess now is the right time as the EFCC is set to grill Lawal Daura
