How ex-SGF Lawal awarded contract to companies linked to him – Witness

The trial of former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal and five others has continued before Justice Jude Okeke of Federal Capital Territory High Court, Maitama.

It continued with the examination in-chief of the fourth witness, Aminu Ahmed, a principal procurement officer in the office of the SGF who told the court that Josmon Technologies and Rholavision, which are linked to the former SFG bid and were awarded contracts by the first defendant.

The two companies, the witness said were among 108 companies in 2016 that bid for projects in the office of the SGF.

Babachir Lawal and his younger brother, Hamidu David Lawal, Suleiman Abubakar, Apeh John alongside Rholavision Engineering and Josmon Technologies are facing prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on an amended 10-count charge, bordering on fraud, diversion of funds and criminal conspiracy to the tune of over N500 million.
