The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has set up a crack team to probe the fraud allegations against the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal.
A source in the anti-graft agency exclusively confirmed this on Thursday in a phone interview.
The team, made up of special investigators from the EFCC, is to examine all the details relating to the N200m contract for the cutting of grass in the north east which is linked to the former SGF.
Meanwhile, the senate has urged the Federal Government to make adequate financial provisions in the 2018 budget for appropriate take-off of the Northeast Development Commission.
The motion, which was presented by the senate majority leader, Ahmad Lawan is optimistic that the commission will end the huge humanitarian crisis in the northeast.
The sponsor, Danjuma Goje is convinced that as an institution backed by law, the commission would remain the biggest succour for people of the region.
