Ahmed Rufai Abubakar, newly appointed director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), appeared before the house of representatives committee on national security and intelligence on Tuesday.

Members of the panel which the president set up to restructure the NIA also appeared before the committee.

The three-member panel is headed by Baba Gana Kingibe, former secretary to the government of the federation.

The panel was set up to look into the operational, technical and administrative structure of the agency and make appropriate recommendations.

It was set up after Ayo Oke, the agency’s former director-general, was sacked over some amounts of money found in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos state.

The aim of the meeting is still not clear as journalists were asked to leave immediately after those present were introduced.
