The House of Representative bid to track down the whereabout of $629,000 bribe rocking the House yesterday failed as House member Jagaba Adama Jagaba denied receiving such money. Mr jagaba insisted that neither him nor members of his committee knew anything about the graft money.

Suspended Chairman of the House Ad-Hoc Committee on Fuel Subsidy Monitoring, Farouk Lawan, had allegedly claimed that the Jagaba panel “took custody of the money” he received from the Chairman of Zenon Oil Limited, Mr. Femi Otedola.

“I wish to categorically and unequivocally state that there was never a time I was in possession of the sum of $620,000 or any other exhibits (in my personal capacity or official capacity as chairman of the House Committee on Drugs, Narcotics and Financial Crimes) relating to the subject matter of the above investigation.

“I hope this explanation lays to rest once and for all the claims that my committee or myself is in possession of the sum of $620,000 purportedly given as bribe to the Ad-hoc Committee on Monitoring of Fuel Subsidy Regime.”
Chairman of the House Committee on Drugs, Narcotics and Financial Crimes, Jagaba Adams Jagaba, was reacting to claims by Farouk Lawan, the embattled Chairman Adhoc Committee that investigated the Subsidy scam that the $620 bribe he received from Otedola is in his custody .

Jagaba was replying to a letter from House Speaker dated 19 April 2012
