The True Face of Lagos, a group which  levelled allegations of financial impropiety against  Lagos State governor,  Mr Babatunde Fashola, has accused the probe panel constituted by the state House of Assembly of being biased in its investigation.

This was contained in a letter signed by the chairman of the group, Mr  Adebayo Adeshina, addressed to the  chairman of the panel, Honourable Ajibayo Adeyeye,  on Tuesday .

According to the letter, the group  stated that a statement credited to one of the members of the committee, Honourable Adefunmilayo Tejuosho, that  the inability of the group to produce proofs on the allegations  made her have some reservations on the allegations,  showed that  the committee would be biased in its finding .

The letter reads: “We draw your attention to media comment made by a member of your committee, Honourable Adefunmilayo Tejuosho, immediately after your sitting of Tuesday, April 27, 2010 in which we had the privilege to be present in respect of your invitation.

“Honourable Tejousho was widely quoted in both electronic and print media to have said she had reservation about our ability to provide proofs on allegations when we had appeared before the panel only once.”
