The Senate had indicted the suspended SGF for allegedly misappropriating funds meant for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
According to Vanguard, Lawal was summoned at night on Monday, May 1, 2017, by the Osinbajo panel to shed more light on the grass cutting contract.
The panel also discovered that the suspended SGF was still a director on the board of the company - Rholavision Technologies Limited, when he assumed office.
It was also established from Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) documents that Lawal resigned from the company on September 16, 2016.
A source also revealed that “He was also given the ample opportunity to defend why the cash from the contract sum was immediately transferred to his ‘former’ company, when in reality records from the Corporate Affairs Commission proved otherwise.”
The Osinbajo panel has also interrogated the suspended boss of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke.
Oke claimed that the funds discovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos state, was meant for covert operations.
