The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has alleged that the embattled former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, paid  $40 million to former President Goodluck Jonathan’s cousin, Aziboala Roberts.

As contained in a statement by the EFCC, Roberts, who is in the custody of the anti-graft agency, received the money in September 2014 for supplying “tactical communication kits.”

Counsel to the EFCC, F.A. Jirbo, said in the statement that the mandate form from Dasuki revealed that the money was wired from the Citibank N.A. Canada Square Canary, Canada, into the Zenith Bank Plc account of Oneplus Holdings Ltd, owned by Robert.

Robert received another N650 million from Dasuki On December 8, 2014, the EFCC said.

The Commission added that the second suspect, Dakoru Atukpa, who is also executive director, projects, at Oneplus, claimed to have used the funds for demobilization of pipeline vandals, peace-building initiatives and easing of oil production through the NNPC LNG projects in Olokola and Brass in 2014.
