The Attorney-General of the Federation, Mr Abubakar Malami has dismissed his involvement in the House of Representatives Committee investigation on over $2.4B dollars in oil revenue.

The oil revenue is said to be from the illegal sales of 48 million barrels of crude oil export in 2015 including crude oil exports from 2014 till date.

Malami said the investigative hearing by the committee was not necessary because it has nothing to do with his office and personality.

The committee had severally invited the Minister which was not honoured, this however led the committee to reissued a summon against the Minister on May 24.

Rep. Mark Gbillah, the Chairman of the Committee said the minister was invited in order for him to shade light on topical issues concerning involvement of his office regarding receipt authorization and general payment remitted over the subject matter.

Malami had earlier claimed that the matter as raised by the whistleblower leading to his involvement was baseless and lacking in substance.

Reacting, Malami said he was not privy to any documents involving him, adding that the Auditor General of the Federation had not also made documents available to him or his office.
