The suspended Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayo Oke, this afternoon betrayed emotions, weeping profusely at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He was however denied access to President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

Ambassador Oke, who was also suspended from office over the discovered funds in Ikoyi, Lagos, equivalent to over N13 billion, noticed the presence of State House correspondents, turned back and attempted to pass through the Vice President’s exit gate but was prevented from doing so by security officials.

Another attempt by the suspended DG to pass through the Service Chiefs’ gate was also turned down by the security staff of the gate.

The NIA boss later left the Presidential Villa without seeing the Vice-President at that particular moment.

According to a statement earlier today by Buhari’s spokesman Femi Adesina, “The President has ordered a full scale investigation into the discovery of large amounts of foreign and local currencies by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in a residential apartment at Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos, over which the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) has made a claim.

“The investigation is also to enquire into the circumstances in which the NIA came into possession of the funds, how and by whose or which authority the funds were made available to the NIA, and to establish whether or not there has been a breach of the law or security procedure in obtaining custody and use of the funds.

“The President has also directed the suspension of the Director General of the NIA, Ambassador Ayo Oke, pending the outcome of the investigation.” (Daily Trust/NAN)
