Lawan Promises To Surrender N93m Bribe by Supergwin(m): 7:13am On Jun 21, 2012
Embattled lawmaker, Farouk Lawan, has finally promised to surrender the $500,000 bribe to the Special Task Force before the end of the week following serious psychological and physical pressures mounted on him by investigators.

It was learnt that Lawan succumbed to the pressure mounted him by the STF Commissioner of Police, Ali Ahmodu, on Wednesday and agreed to bring the money which he was said to have received from Femi Otedola on April 24, 2012.

He was said to have told investigators that he would only surrender the money before witnesses which would include his lawyers, Mike Ozhekome (SAN) and Israel Olorundare.

Boniface Emenalo had been asked to report on Friday, but it could not be ascertained if he would surrender his share of the bribe on that day.

Sources told our correspondent that Lawan cracked when he was confronted with the letter from the Chairman, Committee on Narcotics and Financial Crimes, Adams Jagaba, who denied knowledge of the money.

“When subjected to intense pressure by CP Ahmadu, Lawan finally cracked and said he was tired of the drama and stories surrounding the matter. In an agitated tone, he said he will bring the money before weekend on the condition that there would be witnesses there: this is the breakthrough investigators needed to conclude the case,” a source said.

Jagaba, had in a letter to the Speaker, Mr. Aminu Tambuwal, on Tuesday denied that he was in possession of the money.

He stated, “I wish to categorically and unequivocally state that there was never a time I was in possession of the sum of $620,000 or any other exhibit (in my personal capacity or official capacity as Chairman, House Committee on Drugs/Narcotics and Financial Crimes).”

Lawan had last week claimed that he had handed over the money to Jagaba.

If true then this is a simple open and shut case, and there is no need for the house to do busybody. Man collected bribe, confesses, there is evidence, his alibi has failed, he is even promising to return the money and marked notes at that. If this man does not end up in jail the AGF, IG, EFCC chairman, and all leaders of the many agencies we have fighting corruption deserve to be stoned!! Adoke et al.

And if the many so called "educated" Nigerians don't demand this justice, they deseve to live in poverty!! Very Simple. You can't have it both ways.

Now, can the house get back to the issue of 2.6trillion naira (abut $17 biilion) spent on fuel subsidy in a relatively short space of time??

But wait o, does anyone have the video showing the exact marked money for the'sting' operation? If in the unlikely event that this man produces this money, how can we determine that it is the same money? Please this people should stop messing with our heads? I hope this is not arrangee thing o. Yeye dey smell.

But what about our subsidy report sef? Who is doing something about it or is it dead already!

MAKERS and the BREAKERS of the LAW. Seriously these people bore me.

Money recovered from political fraudsters is "cursed", and the only way to "cleanse" it is to re-distribute the loot to other fraudsters. - Policy of All Levels of Nigerian Government Since Before The War.
