LAGOS– THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is still investigating former military administrator of Lagos State, General Buba Marwa, five days after his first round of questioning.
The presidential aspirant was at the EFCC office in Lagos yesterday for another round of interrogation, because, according to an EFCC source, “we still have some questions to ask him.” The source would not say what those questions were.
But it was made clear that the investigation will continue until Gen. Marwa answers all the questions from his interrogators satisfactorily.
He is being investigated over a $120 million contract he allegedly signed on behalf of the Abacha regime when he served as military attache in the country’s embassy in US. The contract was in respect of some military vehicles sold to Nigeria by India.
Marwa told his interrogators that although he signed the contract papers, negotiation was handled by an associate of the late Gen. Abacha, and payment made by the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank.
Investigation of the matter was first conducted in 2001 but was discontinued apparently because the investigation had reached a cul de sac. Marwa’s associates are insinuating political vendetta in the current investigation.
