GO AND SIN NO MORE!!! EFCC Quickly Releases Babachir Lawal From Detention, 48 Hours After Making Shocking Confessions

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

Lawal regained his freedom after spending about 48 hours in the custody of the anti-graft Agency, in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

The EFCC had said that the former SGF was cooperating with investigators, and making useful confessional statements while in its custody.

Recall, that Lawal was accused of violating due process in the award of contracts under the Presidential Initiative on the North East, PINE.

He was consequently suspended in April 2017, (alongside the former Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, NIA, Ayo Oke), by President Muhammadu Buhari, who set up a three-man panel to investigate the allegations of corruption against both men.

After considering the report of the Panel, the President sacked the former SFG and the former NIA DG, in October 2017, and appointed Mr. Boss Mustapha to replace Lawal.
