Ex-Accountant-General In Trouble Over N1.450bn Received From Dasuki
A former Accountant-General is also on the radar of the EFCC, being one of the beneficiaries of another set of slush funds used for PDP’s campaign in the South-West.
All the slush funds were drawn from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).
He is said to be under surveillance of the EFCC for allegedly receiving about N1.450nbillion from ONSA.
Investigation confirmed that the ex-AG made four accounts available to ONSA where the N1.450 billion was remitted into.
The affected companies and the breakdown of the cash were as follows: Stellavera Development Company (N300 million); First Aralac Global Limited (N300 million); First Aralac Global Limited (N100 million); Damaris Mode (N300 million); Stellavera Development Company (N200 million); Whese Farms Ltd (N250 million).
A source said: “These funds paid to the four companies had nothing to do with any project. Findings revealed that the remittances might be for political purposes.
“Already, a Staff Officer in ONSA in charge of the remittances has made a useful statement to the EFCC.
“The former AG is already placed on surveillance pending the conclusion of preliminary investigation. We will soon invite the ex-public officer for interaction.”
