The Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party – PDP has called for the setting up of an independent commission of inquiry to probe the events that led to the suspension of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal and the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency – NIA, Ayo Oke.
Makarfi, who is heading the party’s national caretaker committee, which is still contesting its sacking by the Court of Appeal at the Supreme Court, described the suspension of the two men as a deceptive maneuver.
The two men were suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja on Wednesday. While the former SGF was suspended over alleged contract scam in the North-East, Oke was asked to step aside following the discovery of more than 43million dollars at a private residence in Ikoyi, Lagos last week.
