According to Bilal, the invitation was for the last administration to account for the property it allegedly disposed of illegally.

He alleged that a lot of government property worth billions of naira were improperly disposed of during Dankwambo’s tenure.

“We call on Dankwambo, his former Commissioner of Finance and appointees, including his Aide Decamp, Principal Permanent Secretary (PPS) Chief of Staff. to respond to the directive,”  he said.

“Also, the former security adviser is to appear before the committee and surrender government property in their possession with immediate effect.”

He added that the committee has recovered some as some beneficiaries voluntarily surrendered theirs.

“So far the committee recovered some property including lands, vehicles among other things.”
