Following the fast-moving events of the past couple of days, in particular the accusations and counter-accusations between the Lawan and a shady oil business magnate Femi Otedola, the chairman of Zenon Oil from whom the chairman seems to have accepted half a million dollars in bribes, Lawan was expected to have been interrogated by the police yesterday but refused to show up.
The Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, Mr Frank Mba, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the lawmaker was with police interrogators at about 9:30 pm.”I can confirm that Hon. Farouk Lawal is with us. He came this evening and he is currently undergoing interrogation at the Force Headqurters here in Abuja.
“It is too early to say whether he will sleep with us or not as interrogation is still ongoing,” Mba said.
