<image004.png>Nigerian Police have arrested Representative Farouk Lawan who is presently undergoing interrogation. The Police public affairs office said at 10.00pm that Farouk Lawan will be detained overnight because Faouk could not produce relevant documents he had told the Press would exonerate him.

!

Farouk Lawan may be held in jail for several more days if the Police determine that he is evasive. By law, the Police is entitled to apply for a remand order from a High Court Judge to legalize a lengthy detention should Farouk Lawan remain un-cooperative with investigations into the bribe of $6 20 million he allegedly received from Femi Otedola to cover up Zenon Oil Company and one other owned by Femi Otedola in the 1.2 trillion Naira fuel subsidy theft scandal which the House of Representaives was investigating. Farouk Lawan was the House of Representaives’ Investigation Chairman.

If i may say, i think it's a good thing that Hon. Lawan has been arrested but what gonna happen next? Could that be the end of the fuel subsidy probe? What happens to the report of the Lawan led committee and those indicted by the report?

Appreciate what the nigeria police did, but why were they dragging foot in arresting those indicted by they report and so swift in arresting Lawal. Let them and their sponsor know that we know what they know. Faruk is a thief just like those mention in the report and many orders that God will soon exposed. God bless Nigeria.

It is good that Farouk Lawan has been arrested for receiving bribe but when will they arrest Otedola the giver of the bribe ? The says that both the giver and the taker are guilty of the offense. The theory of setting up does not hold water at all.

Uhmmmmm.... interesting... how people can be twisted and bought over. see people entrusted with integrity of moving this nation forward? I can obviously see illogical presentation of Hon. Lawan case, nay and behold his dumb folded colleagues could not ascertain or perhaps smell something fishing here... I wish his arrest could reveal more atrocities committed by each and every house committee ranging from Telecomm, to Oil, to Agriculture... where they have all rubbed Peter to pay Paul and flexing riches at the expense of masses... May good God judge them all....

Nigerians are good at unveiling secret on fraud beriberi & corruption  
but when it comes to punishment we are poor.
After all this probing there will still be no punishment  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
