Lawan to spend the weekend in detention

FORMER chairman of the ad hoc committee of the House of Representatives on the probe of subsidy management, Farouk Lawan, who is being investigated over the alleged $620,000 bribery, might spend this weekend in police detention at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, just as his residence in Apo Legislators’ Quarters and office in the National Assembly were combed by the police yesterday.

The Guardian learnt that although no tangible items or documents relating to the allegation were found in the areas searched, the police would want to carry out a full-scale investigation before preferring charges against him in the court of law.
