The immediate past Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr Ibrahim Lamorde, has been flown out of the country for medical attention.
His lawyer, Mr Festus Keyamo, at a meeting with members of the Senate Committee on Ethics, said that Lamorde had gone abroad for medical treatment.
Mr Lamorde was scheduled to appear before the committee over allegations of mismanagement of funds recovered from suspects in cases handled by the EFCC under him.
Mr Keyamo asked the committee on ethics to give Lamorde one month to recover from his medical treatment before appearing before the committee.
However, the committee members disagreed, saying Lamorde must appear before the committee next Tuesday, November 24.
