Grass cutting scandal

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the prosecution of former Secretary to Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal, and ex-Director-General of National Intelligence Agency, NIA, Ayo 
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo disclosed this at an event held in his honour by Christian youths, under the aegis of Ikeja branch of GRILL in Lagos, weekend.

Lawal was sacked after a Senate committee indicted him on misappropriating funds meant for internally displaced persons, IDPs, in the north-east but denied any wrongdoing. The former NIA Director-General was also removed from office, following  the discovery of $43 million at an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos. Answering questions from the audience on the former SGF, Osinbajo said Lawal and Oke were recommended for prosecution by the committee he heads. He said:  “I think the first thing for us is that the report was acted upon; the former SGF was dismissed. Second, the President has directed that the SGF and former DG of NIA be prosecuted
