Tambuwal Signs Arrest Warrant For Sanusi, Yakubu, 14 Others

Following the adoption of a motion moved by chairman, House Committee on Finance, Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin (PDP, Kano), on matters of urgent public importance, informing the House of failure of revenue collecting agencies to honour their several invitations and provide details of their Internally Generated Revenues (IGR) as part of the 2013 budget revenue frame work, the speaker of the Huse of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, yesterday, signed a warrant of arrest on heads of the affected agencies.

Tambuwal then directed Jibrin to write to him and list the erring agencies.
A copy of the arrest warrant signed by the Speaker indicated that CBN governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, NNPC Group Managing Director Engr. Andrew Yakubu are among those listed.
To face arrest also include heads of AMCON, FCT, FAAN, Pension Commission of Nigeria, NIMASA, NPA, among others.

Meanwhile, the force police spokesman has said it has not received any warrant from the National Assembly for the arrest of anybody. It would be recalled that heads of the government agencies in charge of revenue collection had been invited to appear before the House Committee on Finance over the non-remittance of N1.3 trillion revenue to government coffers with most of them failing to appear at the meeting.
