Following the adoption of a motion moved by chairman, House Committee on Finance, Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin (PDP, Kano), on matters of urgent public importance, informing the House of failure of revenue collecting agencies to honour their several invitations and provide details of their Internally Generated Revenues (IGR) as part of the 2013 budget revenue frame work, the speaker of the Huse of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, yesterday, signed a warrant of arrest on heads of the affected agencies.

Tambuwal then directed Jibrin to write to him and list the erring agencies.

A copy of the arrest warrant signed by the Speaker indicated that CBN governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, NNPC Group Managing Director Engr. Andrew Yakubu are among those listed.

To face arrest also include heads of AMCON, FCT, FAAN, Pension Commission of Nigeria, NIMASA, NPA, among others.

Meanwhile, the force police spokesman has said it has not received any warrant from the National Assembly for the arrest of anybody.

It would be recalled that heads of the government agencies in charge of revenue collection had been invited to appear before the House Committee on Finance over the non-remittance of N1.3 trillion revenue to government coffers with most of them failing to appear at the meeting.



  1. i am stil gainin some level of trust 4m a selected few in this house,
    they dnt want to honor d invite so the can block dea loops nd cook up documents of innocency.
    Dis guyz should be quarantined. Nd a prompt investigation commenced.

  2. In Nigerian case, every government functional merchhmaries are soaked wit guilts. Those who issues warrant arrest aren’t innocent and also good to be arrested as well. Lets all these evil man stop fooling the masses. We did not commit any offence by being Nigerian citizens.

  3. Believe me that this is a clear strategy they set up to do the worst. Those in the house of representative will came up with a list of about 9million each as a cost of their findings, and those to be arrested will put their own list of about 2billion as a cost of their expensis during the case period. Who did they want to deceive pls u people shouldn’t be panic because if i were in your shoes i would do more harm than good.
