In a surprise move, President Muhammadu Buhari has sent Winifred Oyo-Ita, the head of service of the federation, on an indefinite suspension.

He also named Folashade Yemi-Esan as the acting head of service “with immediate effect”.

Oyo-Ita is being probed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over an alleged N3 billion contract scam.

TheCable had reported how Oyo-Ita offered to proceed on retirement over the probe but the president turned down her request.

The anti-graft agency had questioned her over allegations that she used front companies to get contracts when she was a permanent secretary before her appointment as head of service by Buhari in 2015.

TheCable learnt that Oyo-Ita was not the subject of the probe. Kabiru Taminu Turaki, former minster of special duties, was being investigated by the EFCC after he stood as surety to Abdullahi Babalele, son-in-law of Atiku Abubakar, in a case of alleged money laundering.

It was in the process that the EFCC stumbled on a petition against Oyo-Ita, dating to her time as permanent secretary under Turaki.
