The House of Representatives Committee on Public Safety and National Intelligence said that contrary to recent reports, the real amount of money missing at the National Intelligence Agency was 202 million dollars and not the 44 million dollars as reported.
The Chairman of the committee, Aminu Sani-Jaji, said the 44 million dollars was not missing but was only moved to a safe location.
However, Sani-Jaji stated that 202 million dollars could not be accounted for at the agency.
The committee is investigating the controversies surrounding the appointment of an acting Director General for the agency, Ahmed Rufai-Abubakar, by President Muhammadu Buhari.
There were reports that Rufai-Abubakar failed his promotion examinations.
Another allegation was that the acting DG was a citizen of Chad.
The House had passed a resolution directing the Sani-Jaji panel to investigate the allegations, just as some directors in the agency petitioned the House, seeking the removal of Rufai-Abubakar.
