EFCC grills ex-Lagos attorney general Olasupo Shasore over P&ID scam

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday quizzed a former attorney general and commissioner for justice in Lagos State Olasupo Shasore over his alleged role in the process and industrial development (P&ID) scam.

A source close to the commission disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

Sashore was alleged to have bungled the case filed against P&ID in London despite being paid a $2 million professional fee by the Federal Government.

Reports said he was appointed as counsel for Nigeria in the arbitration leading to the legal tussle on account of his legal expertise and position as a former president of the Lagos Court of Arbitration.

Shasore was allegedly paid $2 million to assist in the first and second stages of the arbitration.

But investigation by the EFCC later revealed that Shasore might not have given his best to defend the country’s interest but rather kept pushing for settlement, suggesting that he was compromised.

EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren, when contacted by NAN, declined to comment on the development.
