The 9 questions Farouk Lawan has for Otedola over audio tape

The embattled House of Representatives Lawmaker, Hon. Farouk Lawan has raised nine questions for Oil magnate, Femi Otedola on the released audio tape second part on the alleged $620,000 bribery allegation leveled against him.

The lawmaker said his friends and associates could not identify his voice in the audio when listening to the alleged conversation.

In a statement released and signed by his lawyer,Chief Mike Ozekhome, he charged Otedola to give answers to the nine questions over the second part of the audio tape.

The statement added: “The questions that agitate an unbiased mind from this unfolding piece of poorly scripted home comedy are:

•Why is this audio recording being played in bits and pieces, rather than enbloc and wholly?

•How come that an audio recording which ought to be played on Radio for a listening public is being aired on television for a viewing public, when no visual is involved how so ever?

•Where is the visual recording of the alleged bribe?

•How come a supposed part of the same conversation portray Lawan as a talkative, belligerent and unyielding character who barely allowed Mr Otedola to utter one word, while the first part supposedly shows him as a sluggish, tentative, stammering, and measured speaker, speaking only when prompted on by the same Otedola?

•If Lawan says it was left for the Committee to know what to do to help out, why will Otedola pay bribe to influence an issue Lawan had already concluded that his committee would know what to do about?

•If  Lawan did actually warn  Otedola not to tell other Oil Marketers so that the impression is not given that his Committee has been compromised as the audio tend to show, does this not in fact show, assuming the story were correct, that Lawan was actually saying to Otedola, “you know we have not been compromised”?

•Why has it taken Mr Otedola this long to make public his so, called “sting operation” well over two months after Lawan had notified the Police when he interacted with them in May, 2012?

•How come that neither Mr Lawan nor Mr Emenalo was arrested or swooped upon in a so called “sting operation” where money allegedly changed hands on four different occasions?

•What is the source of this audio tape that is being played installmentally and which ought ordinarily to emanate from Security Agencies, if indeed it was a “sting operation” by the SSS?

•Who is fooling whom?

    i think farouk lawan, his lawyer and the so called house committe should just keep quite and allow the law enforcement agents to do their work. lawan has really disapointed the entire nation.

    Nigeria I hail thee! Our leaders una too much!! This drama is becoming interesting everyday, waiting for the conclusion. God deliver Nigeria and have mercy on this country!!!

    Ote D Ole La is really one of those kind of cut-throat Shylocks that have succeeded in maiming Nigeria. He thinks he is smart twisting the public psyche with the audio. The truth is that he is even worse than the Reps who already are seen as nuisances; a caboodle of no-good-rogues who are not even SMART, considering how things have turned out!   Farouk is a disappointment. The whole bunch stink!

    “•If  Lawan did actually warn  Otedola not to tell other Oil Marketers so that the impression is not given that his Committee has been compromised as the audio tend to show, does this not in fact show, assuming the story were correct, that Lawan was actually saying to Otedola, “you know we have not been compromised”? ”   Based on this statement from Farouk can he tell us why he announced on the floor of the house that Zenon and Synopsis should be expunged from the list?Please oga ozekhome i know you want to get a fat paycheck by playing tactically ..fine…no problems…Note that the voice is clearly farouks and by the time video and other evidences come out to nail your client that money you think you want to make will rubbish your image and integrity be warned don’t say had i known Nigerians are watching you…Your submissions on behalf of your client are so faulty and truly funny as you quote shakespare. i do hold you you in high esteem just like other nigerians who know your antecedents but this case will drown you….res ipsa loquitor….pls be wise ozekhome

    Mr. Lawyer, when will you have enough sense to be ashamed of yourself, your client, your silly denials and your moral bankruptcy? Is life all about money for you Oga liar (sorry Lawyer)? What are you teaching your children? I mean, you too look at the maggot you are vomiting nowwwwwww! Have you no shame at all? I mean just a little? Why don’t you just shut up and let Nigerians speak for you, since the other side has chosen to prosecute this case first in the court of public opinion. You are foolishly playing into their hands man! Wisen up. Must you talk all the time a micro phone is place in front of you? Have you no sense of restraint?
     
    As for the House of Rogues, I am devastatingly sad for you. I never know common sense has become this scarce. Wouldn’t it have been wise to allow the law enforcement agencies (who are under the control of the Executive arm of Government) to handle this case their way, so that you could have the opportunity to castigate the outcome later as a ploy by them to destabilize your already crumbling house? Now you are being a judge in your own case and the VERY WELL ADVICED Femi Otedola is being given the impetus to mock you silly. I just pity Nigerian people and their dear legislative institution.
    You are just destroying that institution by trying to save your own. How could you allow Otedola mess you up like that yesterday, Mr. Chairman? Kai! He was cool and you were vociferous. He was smiling and you were frowning. He was happy and you were sad. He was respectful to you and to his own case and you were disrespectful to him and to your own case. PLEASE WHO IS INVESTIGATING WHO?
     
    If the fuel probe, which was most critical to Nigerians and which involves an endless amount of trillions of dollars, was deemed good enough to entertain the Nigerian people, why then is the Lawan probe, which is infinitesimally small compared to the Naira and Dollar value of the larger probe and the persons of 180 million Nigerians too big for the viewing of poor Nigerians?
    I weep bitterly for this country.
    Which ever way this case goes, who ever is guilty at the end, even if both are found guilty, NIGERIAS STILL LOSE.

    This is the tragedy of an absurd nation.

  • Magicheartandfingers

    I don’t have to read everything to know that Farouk Lawan uses telephone and yet still an I.T Illiterate, does he not know that phones can record calls and be posted….its so unfortunate to see my street most honour Lawyer Mike Ozekhome involved in the support of this THIEF…if you want to know the answer, just go and download “call spy” application for your phone…and you will get the answer to all these argument…

  • Oluwakayode

    … and please can anyone educate me? Is insulting people part of the exclusive legislative rights of the House? When does going on national TV to call a Nigerian, who is paying you to make laws of civil decency, stupid become part of the conductions for conducting a probe into a breach of ethics and proper conduct in the house or anywhere else in the world for that matter?

  • Truthisbitter

    I think they are still working on the rest of the tape, if actually it is true what cost him to release it wholly, or he is waiting for reaction to perfect the rest of it.

    Some foreigners think Nigerians in their country scam innocent people to survive or they are just plain wicked, they don’t know the entity called Nigeria is a scam, their president is a scam, police, judiciary, NASS, media corporations, churches etc. Nigeria is in dire need of deliverance….dare I say revolution. The way things are done has to change….

  • Yashua

     It is just a matter of high possibility that the audio is true and not doctored. With IT today, so many things are possible. I will recommend we are not too quick to conclusion. It is very POSSIBLE to play around with the computer to produce the audio. I am a computer programmer, I have some clues on what can be done with the computer today. With someone ready to pay well, it will not be difficult to get some computer wizard to play around with the computer and produce an audio like this. Yes, completely from scratch. Believe Me! Ooooooh, even the FBI will not be able to know it is fake. Anyway, Nigeria is a messed up place. From head to foot, it is all rottenness. Maybe a few sane people here and there.

  • daVC

    this is the most stupid question i have seen in the last 2 decades,

  • Poiniyi

    The questions may sound foolish to some readers but not to all the readers. Infact, I need concrete answer from the so-called SSS. Why was Farouk Lawan not arrested immediately with the evidence and why did it take so long to be made public? What are they waiting for to release the videotapes and audiotapes in their possession if they indeed were in charge of the so called sting operation?Why this question need to be answered is because you may fool someone some of the time but you cannot fool everyone all the time. thus for me the legal saying HE WHO GOES TO EQUITY MUST COME WITH CLEAN HANDS stands for all the players in this bribery saga.There is no saint among them all as they all have skeletons in their cupboards.

  • Uzo

    kk…… it was all accusation Hon lawan…………..my own question for you is WHERE IS THE ALLEGED SUM?how many other lawmakers participated in sharing the money?
