The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), has said the petition, accusing the immediate past Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde, of diverting about N1tn seized by the anti-graft agency from corruption convicts, will not be overlooked.
Malami, in a telephone interview with our correspondent, admitted that investigation into the allegation required time.
The AGF added that any petition, as long as it had to do with corruption, would not be overlooked.
The minister said, “It is just a matter of a little patience over issues. As you know, investigation takes a lot of consideration, a lot of revelations; but whatever it is, as long as the petition relates to corruption, it cannot be overlooked.
