President Bola Tinubu has appointed a special investigator Jim Osayande to probe the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Related Activities.
This was contained in a letter signed by the President and addressed to Obazee, the Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRCN).
Tinubu also sent Obazee a copy of his order suspending Godwin Emefiele as the apex bank chief.
The development is coming just as Emefiele is undergoing trial. While Emefiele has since his suspension being in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), a court last week granted him bail.
The secret police, however, rearrested him.
