#IkoyiGate: Ex-NIA DG, Oke, others to face prosecution soon – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday in Abuja said all those found culpable in the Osborne Towers scandal will be made to account and will be appropriately sanctioned.
Receiving a report of the panel established to review the operational, technical and administrative structure of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), President Buhari described the discovery of monies in the flat at Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos, in April this year, as an ‘‘unfortunate incident which rightly aroused public interest and outcry.’’
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has discovered the sums of $43,449,947, £27,800 and N23,218,000 hidden in flat 7B, No. 13, Osborne Road, Osborne Towers, Ikoyi Lagos,.
The discovery was traced to Mrs. Folashade Oke, wife of the then Director-General of National Intelligence Agency (NIA) boss, Amb. Ayodele Oke.
The incident and the controversies surrounding the cash had led to the suspension and eventual sack of Amb Oke.
