The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami,  has ordered an investigation into the role of a firm belonging to Senator Buruji Kashamu, Kasmal International Services Limited, in the  alleged controversial consultancy agreement over the collection of stamp duties.

A statement by the AGF’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Salihu Isah, on Wednesday  said Malami asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, in a March 4, 2016 letter, to investigate the case and turn in its report within three weeks.

Kasmal International Services Limited was said to have entered the consultancy agreement with the Nigerian Postal Service on  collection of stamp duties from banks and other financial institutions.

The AGF said the controversial agreement led the company  to waive all commercial banks and financial institutions remittances from 2004 till January 1, 2016,  which NIPOST was entitled to  collected under Section 89 of the  Stamp Duties Act.
