President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked his adviser on prosecution, Okoi Obono-Obla, as Chairman of the Special Investigation Panel on the Recovery of Public Property.

Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, in a statement on Sunday, said that recent actions of Obono-Obla ran contrary to the enabling act that established the panel.

The AGF directed Obono-Obla to “henceforth desist from carrying out any operation in his capacity as head of the panel”.

Obono-Obla was notified of his sack via a letter dated November 1 with file number HAGF/SH/2017/VOL/1/60, which was signed by the AGF.

In the letter, Malami maintained that activities of the panel contravened established administrative procedures and protocols in the nation’s civil service structure.

He warned Obono-Obla to strictly comply with FG’s directive and hands-off from further presiding over any activity in the name of the panel.

Obono-Obla was also barred from further granting press interviews without first securing permission to speak on any official matter.
