Two Federal Permanent Secretaries and three Directors of Finance have joined the list of those questioned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in connection with the ongoing probe of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita over an alleged N3billion contract scam.

Another suspect in the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF) who was detained after freezing the N600million in his account, has been released, Magic FM learnt yesterday.

The released suspect is said to be a Project Accountant in the OHCSF.

Oyo-Ita herself is weighing options opened to her as she anxiously awaits the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari on her fate.

Sources said she does not want to be dismissed from office by the president.

The options being considered by Oyo-Ita include a soft-landing by getting the authorities to hear her own side of the story; retirement or resignation; and a waiver from prosecution after returning funds allegedly traced to companies linked to her.
