The suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir David Lawal and Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) by the three-man committee headed by acting President Yemi Osinbajo, will have to wait longer than expected.

The suspension of the two men would remain indefinite, according to a statement by Laolu Akande, media aide to the acting president.

However, Akande who did not give any further details or reasons for the indecision, pleaded for patience on the part of Nigerians, noting that the outcome of the investigations carried out on the two officers would be made public in due time.

“When the time comes, the outcome of the panel would be made manifestly public and Nigerians would be satisfied. The two suspended officials remain suspended,” he said.

Both Lawal and Oke were respectively suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari last month over allegations of financial impropriety in the management of the humanitarian crisis in the North-east and the discovery of N13.3 billion in a Lagos apartment, which the NIA had claimed was its money.
