Subsequent to the conclusion of the assignment and the submission of a final comprehensive report, and with the winding up of all apparatuses used during the scope of the task which terminated on March 31, 2024, the investigation is formally closed, with all appropriate law enforcement and regulatory agencies already conducting follow-up action.

President Tinubu, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, further commended Mr. Obazee for answering the call of duty while wishing him success in his future endeavours.

Recall that President Tinubu in appointing Obazee, had directed the Special Investigator to “ take immediate steps to ensure the strengthening and integrity of crucial government business entities ( GBEs), further block leakages, in CBN, and related CBEs.

“You are to investigate the CBN and related entities using a suitably experienced, competent and capable team and work with relevant security and anti-corruption agencies to deliver on this assignment,” the President had said.
