The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday said the detained cousin to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Aziboala Roberts, got $40million from former NSA Sambo Dasuki.

EFCC counsel F.A. Jirbo while opposing a fundamental rights application by Roberts before an FCT High Court, said the suspect had in September, 2014 received the money from Dasuki for purposes of supplying “tactical communication kits.”

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.

He further added that Roberts’ bank statement of account also shows that another N650 million was on December 8, 2014 transferred to his account by Dasuki.

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.
But counsel to the applicants, Chris Uche (SAN), argued that the failure of the EFCC to release his clients is “a blatant disrespect and disobedience of the court’s order.”
