SHOCKING! Dasuki Lists Former Rivers Gov, Bode George In $2billion Arms Deal Scandal

Chief Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Rivers state governor, Peter Odili have been named among beneficiaries of about N100million each from embattled former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

According to Sahara Reporters, a source at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) revealed that the largess to the two PDP officials was diverted from funds meant for the purchase of arms in order to better equip the Nigerian military in its campaign against Islamist terror group, Boko Haram.

Dasuki, who had made telling revelations in an earlier report following his arrest and interrogation by the EFCC, initially claimed he stole no funds, adding that former president Goodluck Jonathan approved all his expenses related to arms deals.

The confessions however, began after he was shown the statement written by his former director of finance, Shuaibu Salisu, in which all those involved in the scam had been revealed to the investigators.

So far, twenty-one persons have been arrested by the law enforcement agents in relation to the arms purchase scandal.

And an EFCC investigator revealed that some of the detained suspects were now providing useful information after almost all of them initially exhibited resistance.

It was also gathered that Odili and George “may soon be invited to explain why they received N100 million each from funds budgeted for arms purchase.”

Shuaibu Salisu (who was recently arrested), Abba MT Usman, Sagir Attahiru, Evegny Kundaev, Aminu Baba Kusa, Salisu Usman Garu, Bashir Yuguda, Attahiru Bafarawa were still indetention as at yesterday night, while Chief Raymond Dokpesi was released last night after meeting bail conditions.
