EFCC reveals how Jonathan’s cousin got $40m from Dasuki
Aziboala Roberts, the detained cousin to former president, Goodluck Jonathan has been accused of collecting $40million from the former national security adviser, 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.”
Jirbo said the mandate form from Dasuki 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 added that 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.
However, Robert’s counsel, Chris Uche (SAN), said the failure of the anti-graft agency to release his clients was “a blatant disrespect and disobedience of the court’s order.”
