HOUSE OF REPS BEGIN TO INVESTIGATE NIA OVER ALLEGEDLY MISSING $44m
The House of Representatives has on Tuesday mandated its committee on national security and intelligence to investigate reports of $44 million allegedly missing from the vaults of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).
The sponsor of the motion which led to this resolution, Rep. Douye Diri, observed that this latest report is coming too soon after over $43million of the same agency were discovered in a block of flats in Ikoyi, Lagos State.
The fund, $44million in cash, which was kept at NIA vaults at its headquarters in Abuja was said to be been removed to an unknown destination, according to reports.
The alleged evacuation was reportedly carried out two days after Ahmed Rufa’i Abubakar was appointed as its new Director-General by President Muhammadu Buhari.
