The Chief Executive Officers of 30 multinational companies have been placed on wanted list by the Senate who instructed the Police to secure their arrest immediately.
The request came due to the CEOs failure to show up at the Senate hearing, NAN reports.
The companies include mobile giant, Globacom, and Crown Flour Mills.
A Senate committee, headed by Hope Uzodinma, had earlier invited the chief executives as part of its investigation into a ‘N30 trillion’ revenue scam allegedly perpetrated by the firms.
The Senate had on Wednesday threatened to issue the arrest warrants; but on Thursday, it said it was extending the appearance till next week.
The News Agency of Nigeria, however, reports that the order to arrest the chief executives was given on Friday.
