The Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami has said, President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government may soon initiate probe into the Siemens and Halliburton bribery scandals.
A number of prominent Nigerians, including former military Heads of State, Ibrahim Babangida, Abdulsalami Abubakar and Senator Jubril Aminu, were accused of collecting bribes to award multi-million dollar contracts to the two foreign companies.
Malami speaking with journalists in Abuja revealed that the current government had not closed any criminal case being investigated in the country. He also refuted claims that Buhari was afraid of taking up the Halliburton and Siemens cases because the key suspects were top military leaders. The AGF stated that the President was not afraid to do what is right in the interest of Nigerians. According to Malami, the government would observe the rule of law in its pursuit of corruption cases in the country.
