He said the suspension was based on the order of Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on January 23, 2019.
Mohammed was sworn in inside the council chamber of the presidential villa in Abuja.
The swearing-in ceremony was done after the president signed the new executive order 007.
Mohammed was driven into the forecourt of the president’s office in a black Mercedes Benz C240 with number plate: GWA:900FA, at 4:30pm.
According to a report by The Nation newspaper, detectives found “suspicious” transactions, including an $800,000 Standard Chartered Bank investment subscription.

Also found is $630,000 lodged in some of the accounts through what is described as “structured payments” in tranches of $10,000 each.
Most of the lodgments, effected between 2012 and 2016, were undeclared in Justice Onnoghen’s assets declaration form, the sources claimed, pleading not to be named because of the “sensitivity” of the investigation.
The Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) has restricted the operation of five accounts with about $3million.
