“Speaker Dogara has ordered that all the computers in the appropriation secretariat be shut down and moved to his office as if that is the answer to the allegations I raised. The secretariat staff are being harassed to keep quite and suppress facts. There has also been an attempt to break into my office at the House.

I know he wants to tamper with documents critical to his and the 3 others future investigation and prosecution but unfortunately for him we already have enough evidence in our possession. The security and anti corruption agencies should kindly take note. 5 members of the Gombe caucus addressed the press today in a show of shame and succeeded in only rehearsing the accusation of lies leveled against me by speaker Dogara.

Two of them are part of the list of corrupt members I will be submitting to the EFCC. My response to them is they should simply read my full reply released yesterday and join the transparency group TG. An alliance of hundred of members to cleanse the House of corruption and corrupt members. They act Honourably by calling on Speaker Dogara to listen to the call of Nigerians to reconvene the house immediately so that an independent investigation can commence.
