A police source in charge of investigations at the Police HQ in Abuja told SaharaReporters that the embattled rep member was in their custody but would not elaborate.

Following the fast-moving events of the past couple of days, in particular the accusations and counter-accusations between the Lawan and a shady oil business magnate Femi Otedola, the chairman of Zenon Oil from whom the chairman seems to have accepted half a million dollars in bribes, Lawan was expected to have been interrogated by the police yesterday but refused to show up.
