A top EFCC source said Obaigbena returned the money on Tuesday, February 2, 2016.
The publisher of ThisDay Newspapers, Mr. Nduka Obaigbena has reportedly returned N350m to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
A top EFCC source who spoke to Punch said Obaigbena returned the money on Tuesday, February 2, 2016.
The source said “The Publisher of ThisDay Newspaper, Mr. Nduka Obaigbena, has returned N350m out of the N670m he received from the ONSA
“The Publisher is expected to return the rest N200m next week. You know that he signed an undertaking to return the money before they released him. That undertaking expires on Tuesday next week.’’
Obaigbena was invited by the anti-graft agency to shed more light on the N670m he allegedly collected from the office of a former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki.
He was granted an administrative bail after agreeing to refund the money.
The EFCC subsequently gave the business mogul two weeks to refund the money.
Reports also said Obaigbena used some part of the funds he collected, to fund Arise TV, his UK based television station, adding that N568, 360, 000 was allegedly transferred to Arise Global Media Limited.
