Senate Majority leader, Senator Ali Ndume says he is willing to testify against former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki and all those indicted in the $2.1billion arms deal at the International Criminal
Court, ICC. Ndume said this in an interview with Daily Trust, while applauding the efforts of human rights Lawyer, Femi Falana, who says he
will be approaching ICC to try all those indicted in the fraud with
charges of War crimes:

“As far as we are concerned, these people shared blood money. Borno
elders have made our position known on this through a statement they
issued. We stand by our elders’ statement, that anybody who shared from
the money meant for the purchase of arms to fight Boko Haram, is part of
the sect, or they are sponsors of the sect. There are classes of Boko
Haram – the army of Boko Haram, the supporters of Boko Haram and the
sponsors of Boko Haram. Those people that shared the money for the
purchase of arms are part of Boko Haram. We are supporting the
government in the investigation and recovery of the funds. In fact, we
are saying the government should take the case to Hague. We are very
glad that somebody in the person of Femi Falana, a Senior Advocate of
Nigeria (SAN), has taken the case further by going to the International
Criminal Court (ICC). Kudos to him. If need be, I’m willing to testify
at the ICC against those who collected the money meant for the Boko
Haram war. This is because I am a victim too. We stand by Falana and we
are going to support him to pursue the case at the ICC. We are not
surprised that Falana has taken the case further because he is always by
the side of the oppressed”.

Ndume also rubbished claims by PDP members that the probe was a witch-hunt against its members

 

“Dasukigate is not a witch-hunt because it is a fact that they shared
the money meant for the Boko Haram war. Is the money stolen or not?
They stole the money and they must be prosecuted for it. It has gone
beyond politics.
Apart from Falana, the international community has commended the country
for trying to recover the arms money. John Kerry in particular said
they were in total support of Nigeria.”
