The Nation reports that Oyo-Ita’s movement has been restricted to the country pending the conclusion of the investigation. Although she is hospitalized having complained of being ill, EFCC sources said security operatives had been deployed to monitor her movement within the Abuja hospital where she is currently on admission.

“The latest about the ongoing investigation is that the EFCC has seized the international and diplomatic passports of the Head of Service. In line with normal investigative procedure, we need to restrict her movement to the country to enable her attend more interrogation sessions which have been lined up for her. We are monitoring her progress in the hospital until she is stable enough to come for another round of grilling.

We may invite some Permanent Secretaries and others because our investigation shows fresh clues during analysis of letters of award of contracts in some ministries, departments and agencies. All the accounts of the affected companies have been placed under watch till they are clear of any infraction.” an EFCC source said
