Another Dasukigate may be imminent if what transpired in Goodluck Jonathan’s administration is revealed as EFCC arrests the ex president’s former ADC who is said to give mind-boggling confessions.
A former aide-de-camp to President Goodluck Jonathan, Col. Ojogbane Adegbe, who was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday in Lagos where he went through rigorous interrogations, has warned that another Dasukigate may be imminent if he is forced to reveal what transpired in that administration.
It was gathered that Adegbe who was flown to Abuja yesterday after being interrogated in Lagos, could open up a new can of worms, which ‘could surpass what is now known as Dasukigate.’
According to an insider who disclosed to The Sun, they are hopeful the former ADC may soon give details of all he knows with regards to financial transactions and the dramatic personae involved in the last administration.
Preliminary findings, including recovered documents, were said to have suggested a large-scale of questionable expenditure with funds sourced from and outside the arms purchase deals.
Another source told the newspaper that, “most of the funds were reportedly diverted soon after the election was postponed from the originally scheduled date of February 14, 2015 to March 28, 2015.”
Among the active participants in the alleged loot, was a top official of an agency set up to discourage militancy in the South-South, who is currently outside the country.
At the centre of the interrogation of the former ADC, who has been moved to Abuja, was the “mind-boggling spending” during the two weeks’ extension of the general election, “which runs into several trillions of naira, when converted from foreign currency.”
Sources disclosed further that many top Nigerians, “including some very close persons” to the former president, may likely be called to explain and defend their roles in the handling of the funds, a chunk of which was sourced from the agency.
The ADC who was arrested in Lagos a few days ago, was alleged to be attending a senior officers course when he was picked up for interrogation.
