ABUJA-Barely 24 hours after the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal was suspended, Governor Jibrila Bindo of Adamawa has visited the Presidential Villa.
Osinbajo Bindo was sighted inside the Villa but it was not clear whether he met with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo or the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba kyari. Speculations were however rife that the governor’s visit was not unconnected with the suspension of the SGF who hails from his State. Similarly, the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu was also seen coming out from the office of the Vice President. The believe was that he was invited for questions by the committee set up yesterday by the President headed by Osinbajo to investigate suspended SGF and the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, NIA, Ambassador Ayo Oke. But when Vanguard asked him of his mission to the Villa, the EFCC boss said he attended Assets Recovery Committee meeting. Earlier, Osinbajo had met with the Inspector-General of Police, Idris Abubkar, the Director-General of the Department of State Security, DSS, Lawal Daura, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, the National Secretary Adviser, the acting SGF, Dr. Habibat Lawan and the acting DG, NIA, Ambassador Arab Yadam amongst others. It was believed that they were for the investigation into the allegations of corruption against Lawal and Oke.
