Osinbajo meets suspended SGF Lawal, NIA Director General evades journalists


Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has met with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal, barely an hour after the announcement of Mr. Lawal’s suspension from office.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the closed-door meeting is connected with the work of the Presidential Committee set up to investigate allegations of misconduct against the SGF.
When accosted, Mr. Lawal refused to comment on the outcome of his meeting with the vice-president.
The Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, NIA, Ayo Oke, who was also suspended, was seen around the Vice President’s office immediately after the departure of the SGF.
The NIA boss, who noticed the presence of State House correspondents, however turned back and attempted to pass through Vice President’s exit gate.
He was prevented from going out through that point by security officials; the security also stopped Mr. Oke from passing through the service chief’s gate.
The NIA boss later left the Presidential Villa without seeing the Vice-Pr&esident.
