SGF Babachir Should Have Been Arrested – PDP

The Ahmed Markafi-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the suspension of Babachir Lawal, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), and Ayo Oke, director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), is an attempt to dress up a “failed anti-corruption war”.
President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the suspension of the duo on Wednesday.

But in a statement on Thursday, Dayo Adeyeye, spokesman of the Markafi faction of the PDP, said the right thing to be done was to have arrested Lawal.
“We are alarmed at the suspension of the SGF at a time that Nigerians and the international community are excitedly enjoying the theatre of the absurd playing out with the recovery of huge sums of money without owners,” he said.
“Now the APC-led federal government suddenly realised the corruption allegation levelled against the SGF; and instead of arresting and detaining him as the government has been doing to PDP members and other Nigerians, he was rather suspended and a committee set-up to investigate him. This is to say the least, double standard.
