Just about 241 companies, individuals and organizations will go before the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA) over contracts awarded and payments made by the office during the tenure of the embattled ex NSA chief, Sambo Dasuki.
It was learnt that the office warned those involved to appear as those who do not, might be embarrassed.
Sambo Dasuki is currently in trial for allegedly diverting $2.1 billion from the ONSA meant for the purchase of arms.
A public notice released on Friday directed the firms to appear before a panel probing payments to individuals, companies and foundations.
The invited companies are to appear between January 12 and 26 with their certificates of incorporation, particulars of directors, tax clearance certificates for their companies and directors from 2011 till date, letter of award of contracts, evidence of payments so far/outstanding balance, certified bank statements, and other documents considered relevant to the contracts.
A statement put out by the Principal General Staff Officer in the NSA office said: “The general public is please invited to note that companies or organisations that received payments from ONSA between 2011 and 2015, who have not appeared before the Committee, and their names are not reflected in the list below, should please endeavour to appear before the committee anytime within the stated period at the Office of the National Security Adviser’s Complex, 3 Arms Zone, Abuja.
“Your prompt appearance before the committee would be wise to avoid any embarrassment.”
