The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Wednesday, made known exactly how a relative to previous President Goodluck Jonathan, Azibaola Roberts, obtained $40million from previous NSA, Sambo Dasuki.
EFCC guidance F.A. Jirbo while opposing a basic legal rights application by Roberts prior to an FCT High Court, stated the suspect had in September, 2014 obtained the cash from Dasuki for objectives of providing “tactical interaction sets. ” He said the mandate form from the ex-NSA showed that the money was wired from the Citibank N.A. Canada Square Canary, Canada into the Zenith Bank Plc account of Roberts’ company, Oneplus Holdings Ltd.
Jirbo added that Roberts’ bank statement of account also shows that another N650 million was on December 8, 2014 transferred to his account by Dasuki.
He said the second suspect, Dakoru Atukpa, the executive director projects at Oneplus, claimed to have used the funds for peace building initiatives, demobilization of pipeline vandals and easing of oil production through the NNPC LNG projects in Olokola and Brass in 2014.
Responding, cousel to the applicants, Chris Uche (SAN), argued that the failure of the EFCC to release his clients was “a blatant disrespect and disobedience of the court’s order.”
