Another high profile government in Buhari's "government of truth" has found himself in the web of alleged financial fraud.
The Director-General of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Mounir Gwarzo has been suspended.
His suspension according to the Minister for Finance, Kemi Adeosun is to allow an unhindered investigation into several allegations of financial impropriety levelled against him.
