Malami’s position was made known in a letter to the committee on Thursday indicating that the Ministry of Justice was trying to put together a comprehensive response to the alleged sale of 48 million barrels of crude oil valued at over $2.4 billion.

However, the Chairman of the committee, Mark Gbillah, who read the letter, said it came “a lot later than expected”.

He added that the committee would expect the attorney general to provide the required response and to also appear before the committee next Thursday.
