All the invitees are to be quizzed on their various roles on the matter from 2010 to date.

A copy of a letter written to the affected agencies and corporate bodies showed that stakeholders such as SGS, Cotecna, Global Scan and Web Fountain Nig Limited would also be quizzed.

The House Committee on Customs, chaired by Rep Abiodun James Faleke (APC, Lagos), said all those invited must appear next Wednesday to provide detailed explanation on the matter.
