Some senior police officers would face the police disciplinary panel for allegedly allowing former chairman of the House of Representatives ad hoc committee on fuel subsidy Farouk Lawan who was detained over alleged $620, 000 bribery scandals to sneak out of the police detention facility and go home.
Lawan sneaked out of the police headquarters on Thursday night while in detention with the aid of some policemen and went home. He took bath at home and ate dinner before returning to his cell. Already three policemen were being questioned over the matter.
A source said about two senior officers apart from those being investigated who were found to have a hand in the matter, will face disciplinary panel.
He said Forouk was illegally allowed to go home while in detention.
The police Special Task Force investigating the matter are yet to retrieve the bribe money.
