It was gathered that Jonathan is expected to be questioned over claims that he approved the operation for which the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) allegedly obtained the money.

However, the former president may not be summoned to the venue of the panel’s sitting. Sources said the committee members will arrange to meet with Jonathan, at the former president’s preferred point.

The panel will also summon suspended Director-General of NIA, Ayodele Oke, and his predecessor, Olaniyi Oladeji.

The panel has two weeks to conclude its activities.
