Wednesday’s trial of a former Chief of Air Staff, Adesola Amosu at the Federal High Court in Lagos has witnessed a mind-boggling disclosure of how he ferried massive sums of money from government coffers to his private pocket.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission told the court presided over by Justice Mohammed Idris how Amosu illicitly withdrew funds from the Nigerian Air Force bank account to buy big properties at strategic locations in Nigeria and abroad.
Mr. Amosu was arraigned alongside Jacob Adigun, an Air Vice Marshal, and Gbadebo Olugbenga, an Air Commodore, on a 26-count charge of stealing N50 billion according to Premium Times.

Also arraigned with the trio before Justice Mohammed Idris were their companies – Delfina Oil and Gas Ltd; McAllan Oil and Gas Ltd; Hebron Housing and Properties Company Ltd; Trapezites BDC; Fonds and Pricey Ltd; Deegee Oil and Gas Ltd; Timsegg Investment Ltd; and Solomon Health Care Ltd.

According to the charge sheet seen by a correspondent, Mr. Amosu and Mr. Adigun, a former Head of Accounts and Budgeting at the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), allegedly removed sums running into billions of naira from NAF’s bank account to purchase properties for themselves in choice locations in Abuja, Lagos, and London.
