Following the directive by the Attorney-General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke, that the report submitted by the Police Special Task Force probing the $620,000 subsidy bribe scandal, be re-investigated, new developments are emerging.

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, has received the video tape of the alleged bribery transaction involving Mr. Farouk Lawal, former Chairman, House of Representatives Probe Panel, from the State Security Service (SSS) and commenced further investigation of the scandal.

It has also been gathered that since the receipt of the video by the IGP and commencement of investigation to clear grey areas, there had been immense pressure on the IGP by some members of the House of Representatives, prominent northern citizens and politicians.

Fresh accusations that the bribery scam issue was allegedly a set up by the Presidency to rubbish the integrity of the House have also resurfaced. According to Vanguard, Lawal had been reporting to the police every two days and signs an attendance register.

Though it is believed that the dexterity and sense of purpose with which the police hierarchy was pursuing the case may be reducing as even the Presidency that earlier wanted a quick resolution of the bribery scam, may have backed down on the matter.
