As Dasuki Names Odili, Bode George In Scandal

Former Sokoto governor, Attahiru Bafarawa has stated that he received N4.6 billion from Mr. Dasuki for “spiritual purposes.”

It was gathered that security agents are still questioning the former governor to explain what was meant by “spiritual purposes.”

The report further quoted the source as saying Odili and Mr. George “may soon be invited to explain why they received N100 million each from funds budgeted for arms purchase.

Rivers State Governor, Peter Odili and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bode George, received the sum of N100m each from the former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki, rtd.

It was gathered that the money was paid to them so as to ensure the re-election of former President, Goodluck Jonathan, who lost the presidential election held on March 28, 2015.

It will be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari recently commissioned a panel to investigate how $2bn meant for the procurement of arms deal disappeared from the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.

Col Sambo Dasuki, rtd, who was arrested yesterday initially claimed that he never diverted money meant for the procurement of arms as the former President, Goodluck Jonathan approved all his expenses related to the deals.

His stand on the matter later changed soon after he was confronted with the statement written by his former Director of finance, Shuaibu Salisu who revealed the names of those involved in the scam.

No fewer than 21 persons have been arrested by the law enforcement agents in connection with the arms deal.
