Fuel subsidy report bribe: Otedola appears before Police Task Force

The Chairman Zenon Petroleum, Mr. Femi Otedola is reported to have appeared before the Special Task Force headed by Commissioner of Police, Mr Ali Amodu, to either deny or confirm that he gave a bribe of $600,000 to the House member Chairman of House of Representative AD HOC committee on oil Subsidy, Farouk Lawan.

Mr. Otedola is said to have arrived the Force headquarters at about 10.55am, on Tuesday and told the Special Task Force that all he had said about the issue so far was the truth, and that he has nothing to hide.

The oil magnate is reported to have added that the bribe money in question, was given to Mr Lawan who, allegedly collected $500,000 in cash and the Secretary of the committee, Boniface Emenalo who collected $120, 000 in two installments .

Mr. Otedola is also said to have told the Special Task Force that the money in question was gotten wholesale, from the State Security Service (SSS), adding that it was so done to exonerate himself and to show that he was pressurized against his will to part with the money because he was aware of the implications before the law.

    With the recent events and personal statements concerning the subsidy committee, it is glaring that all the parties concerned owe Nigerians an explanation. It is also important for the FG to upgrade the prison facilities to world human rights standards because a lot of people need to go to jail for crime against powerless Nigerians.

    Who says GEJ is not working? He is working quite well for the king-makers who gave him the throne. The subsidy thieves must be laughing now like>>Choiiiii!! that was close. I’m not surprised that Farouk has been implicated, he must have thought that it is business as usual without realising that this time the fishes (cabals) are too big for the net (legislature/judiciary). The subsidy scam played perfectly according to the script and Farouk may be the scapegoat. LEADERS WITH INTEGRITY ARE ENDANGERED SPECIE IN NIGERIA. I wonder why we are wasting time arguing over these rogues…what we need is a revolution. We need to change the way law is being handled in Nigeria…..Public officials must be made to FEAR public anger. Instead we rally around them and defend them because of sentiments. SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE IN NIGERIA, YOUR VOTES CAN’T GUARANTEE THAT CHANGE BUT AN EGYPT-STYLE REVOLUTION CAN.
