Recall Governor Oborevwori had constituted a seven man committee chaired by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Dr. Kingsley Emu to investigate claims and perceived infractions related to the management of the scheme by the Ministry.

The suspension of Omoun is consequent upon the interim report of the committee and in order to have an unimpeded access to information during the period of the investigations.
