The vehicles, said to be worth N310 million, were allegedly passed through PDP Deputy Chairman, Uche Secondus to the beneficiaries.

According to reports, a former governor and some senior members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are among those who received luxury vehicles from a business associate of former petroleum minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The vehicles, said to be worth N310 million, were allegedly passed through PDP Deputy Chairman, Uche Secondus to the beneficiaries.

The latest allegation was revealed to The Nation by a source close to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC).

“The ongoing probe of the oil-receipts-vehicles-for-party deal has revealed that a former South-South governor and some chieftains of the PDP were involved. All these people will be invited for interrogation too,” the source said.

“The former governor used his influence to prevail on the businessman to “donate vehicles” to the PDP. So far, only a former Minister of Foreign Affairs has admitted receiving a vehicle as a gift from Secondus.

“But some of those concerned have been desperate in looking for court injunctions to retrain the EFCC from either inviting or arresting them,” the source added.

The agency has reportedly asked Secondus to refund the sum involved to the government.
