The Senate Ad-hoc Committee on Alleged Fraudulent Activities in Collection, Accounting, Remittance and Expenditure by Revenue Generating Agencies has invited the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, to appear before it.

The committee’s Chairman, Sen. Solomon Adeola, in a statement by his Media Adviser, Mr Kayode Odunaro, on Sunday said the invitation followed findings on a N6.5bn unpaid revenue accruing from the Lagos Trade Fair Complex. He said others invited to appear before the committee are the Director Generals of Directorate of State Security, Bureau of Public Enterprise and National Council on Privatisation.

Adeola said the essence of the invitation was to get the Police and DSS to assist the Federal Ministry of Commerce and Industry and the Bureau of Public Enterprise in recovering the money, which had accrued for over nine years. Adeola said it had become necessary to recover the 322 hectares multi-billion Naira complex following a huge debt due to the N40bn lease fees.
