Emefiele was summoned by the committee in its bid to unravel the truth concerning allegations against the suspended Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Dr. Ayo Oke; and the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal

The committee headed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami; and the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, as members.

The panel which is saddled with the responsibility of finding out how the NIA came in possession of the over $50m found in a house in Ikoyi and allegations of procurement violations by Lawal has 14 days to submit its report.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said both Oke and the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, would be handed over to the EFCC if they are found guilty.
