Otedola-Farouk Scandal Hits Dead End, Money and Tape Not Given To The Police


This is one of my problems with Nigerian Investigation, so much hype at first then it starts getting complicated, money changes hands confusion sets in , the case fades away, and Nigerians being who we are, act like it never happened and we all move on.
This was what I read in the Punch this morning:
Police investigators are in a dilemma over the whereabouts of the N96m bribe received by the Chairman of the House of Representatives ad hoc committee on fuel subsidy, Mr. Farouk Lawan, from the Chairman of Zenon Oil and Gas, Mr. Femi Otedola.
Our correspondent gathered in Abuja that Lawan, who appeared at the Force Headquarters on Wednesday, insisted that he gave the money to the Chairman, Committee on Narcotics and Anti-corruption, Adams Jagaba.
Investigations showed that the police probe into the matter was compounded by the refusal of the State Security Service to provide the Special Task Force with the original copy of the video recording of what transpired between Lawan and Otedola.
