The House of Representatives is currently grilling the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, over the alleged loss of over $2.4 billion unremitted oil revenue.
Malami, in company with the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Justice, and Solicitor-General of the Federation, Beatrice Jedy-Agba, is appearing before the House of Representatives ad hoc committee investigating the alleged loss of over $2.4 billion unremitted oil revenue.
The revenue is from the illegal sale of 48 million barrels of crude oil export from 2014 till date.
Malami, who appeared before the House on April 28, 2023, described the allegations as baseless, unfounded, and lacking in merit and substance.
He said the office of the AGF had filed a criminal suit against the individuals who purportedly raised the allegations being investigated by the House’s ad hoc committee.
The House had in December 2022 resolved to constitute an ad-hoc committee to probe the allegation when it adopted a motion sponsored by Isiaka Ibrahim at plenary.
