According to the newspaper, the ADC said when the suitcases containing the cash were brought as messages for the President, he merely handed them over to Dudafa, pointing that military law does not permit him to open any message meant for the President, unless directed otherwise.

“The ADC has spoken with investigators. He said when the suit cases containing the N10billion were brought as messages for the ex-President, he did not open them but he handed over the items to SA Domestic Affairs," the newspaper quoted a source at the EFCC.

The source continued: “He said as ADC, the military law forbids him from opening any message meant for the President, unless directed by the C-I-C.

“So, it is only the SA Domestic Affairs, who has sneaked out of the country, who will need to provide the list of beneficiaries. This is the status of the case.

“If Dudafa does not show up, we may declare him wanted in connection with the N10billion cash or seek the court’s permission to attach his property.

“We are exploring mutual legal assistance with some countries to fish out Dudafa wherever he is hiding abroad.”

In his statement, Dasuki had said he handed over the N10billion given to the delegates to Dudafa and the ADC.

Similarly, one of the Army officers being questioned over the $2.1 billion arms purchase scandal, Col. N. Ashinze , the former Special Military Assistant to the ex-NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), was not able to resume in his new posting as the nation’s Military Attache to the Nigerian Embassy in Germany.

Even though Col. Ashinze has been released from EFCC custody and restricted to the Officers Mess, it being speculated that he may be dropped from the foreign mission.
