The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has frozen some bank accounts linked to Babachir Lawal, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation. A source confirmed the move to The Punch. It said the account of Rholavision Engineering Limited, at Ecobank which was incorporated by the former SGF in 1990 had been frozen by the commission as well as his private account at Diamond Bank.
The source went on to say the commission would also probe other accounts with which he received and transferred money, promising that they were ready to do a thorough job. He also said that Lawal’s associates would be invited for interrogations soon.
Lawal’s detention comes less than three months after he was sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari for financial impropriety.
