The report of the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) on allegations of fraud against some top government officials is ready, Daily Trust gathered yesterday.
President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered Malami to investigate some top officials including Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir David Lawal and acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.
Sources at the minister’s office said Malami made efforts three times over the weekend to submit the reports to President Buhari but could not get access to the president.
The source who does not want his name in print said the AGF made extra effort to contact every institution mentioned in the response to the query slammed on Magu and Babachir.
“This was to get additional information to what was contained in the response to the query. In some cases, the AGF did not rely on the responses to the query but independently on what he got from the institutions mentioned in the responses to the query,” the source said.
The ongoing process was ordered by the President after the Senate declined confirmation of Magu over alleged fraud, while another report by a Senate committee indicted Babachir in alleged corruption at the Presidential Initiative on North East (PINE).
When Daily Trust visited the AGF’s office to get his reaction, his Secretary said that the AGF was on his way to a meeting and that he (AGF) would get back to our correspondent.
