The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Ibrahim Lamuwa, who was accused of attempting to sleep with a married woman under him, has been suspended by the Office of the Head of Service.

The Head of Service, Folashade Yemi-Esan, said the permanent secretary would be on suspension pending the outcome of investigation into the allegation against him.

“The permanent secretary has been suspended pending the outcome of the probe by the committee set up, “ a senior director in the OHCSF told the Punch in Abuja.

Recall that the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar called for a probe of Lamuwa after he received a petition against him by the lawyers of one Simisola Ajayi.

Ajayi, in the petition filed by her lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), outlined alleged instances of harassment.

Upon receipt of Tuggar’s mail, the HoS set up a committee to probe the allegations, according to sources.
