The Federal Government may refer 300 persons and firms implicated in the N116billion contracts in the Office of the National Security Adviser to investigating agencies. Those who may either probe or prosecute the indicted persons and firms are the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and the Nigeria Police Force.
But there was panic yesterday within the ranks and file of those implicated in the contract scams. Although about three of the indicted persons were said to have gone on self-exile, it was learnt that they might be extradited. Some persons and firms were allegedly perfecting plans to go to court as from Monday for “not getting fair hearing”.
