Indications emerged, yesterday, that the Police are under intense pressure to charge Chief Femi Otedola, the accuser of the erstwhile chairman of the House Probe Committee, Hon. Farouk Lawal, if at all Farouk is to be prosecuted.
Vanguard gathered that the delay in arraigning Lawan after months of the conclusion of the investigative reports followed intrigues and pressure being mounted on the government by top brass of the National Assembly to drop the charges against him.
With government insistence, however, that the matter was purely left for the Police to handle and that it will abide by Police findings, mounting pressure is now on the police to charge Otedola along, with sources saying this may lead to the Federal Government intervening to give Lawan a safe landing.
However, the embattled former Fuel Subsidy Adhoc Committee Chairman, Farouk Lawan, has continued to report to the police authorities in compliance with his bail condition which says he should be reporting twice a week to the police.
Consequently, a register was opened for him to be signing every time he reports in a week and Vanguard gathered that so far, he has obeyed the directive diligently and signed attendance register about 40 times.
When he appeared before the Police yesterday, Lawan was cited in a milk colour caftan signing the register at the Force Headquarters.
