N1.07t subsidy fraud: Govt panics over protest threats

LAGOSIANS woke up yesterday to find a team of battle-ready policemen at the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park in Ojota on the outskirts of the city. Their presence is belived to be the government’s reaction to the protest being planned by the Save Nigeria Group (SNG) and other activists against the alleged N1.070 trillion fraud exposed by the report of the House of Representatives ad-Hoc Committee on Fuel Subsidy.

Save Nigeria Group (SNG) leader Pastor Tunde Bakare has reportedly announced that the Federal Government had been served a mass protest notice, if it fails to prosecute all those mentioned in the report. Besides, the cleric said the culprits should be asked to make refunds within a specified time. He said that the civil society group has started dissecting the report and that another operation “Occupy Nigeria” is imminent, if the government fails to prosecute the culprits.
