The former Aide De Camp (ADC) to ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan, Colonel Ojogbane Adegbe is reportedly expected to reveal details of a scam which “could surpass what is now called Dasukigate.”

“Dasukigate” is a term which is frequently used to describe the $2.1 billion arms deal fraud which was supervised by former National Security Adviser(NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

According to the Daily Sun, Adegbe also said that his revelations of what transpired during Jonathan’s administration would shock the country.

The former ADC was arrested in Lagos on Wednesday, February 10, 2016, and is currently being interrogated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Adegbe is believed to have participated in the distribution of N10 billion in allegedly laundered funds to members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The EFCC is also reportedly questioning him on the “mind-boggling spending” of amounts which run “into several trillions of naira” after Nigeria’s presidential elections were postponed from February 14 to March 28.

According to a source who spoke to the Daily Sun, “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…”

Jonathan’s government postponed the general elections after citing security problems but an associate of the former president later said that the polls were shifted because it had become clear that Jonathan would lose to incumbent, President Muhammadu Buhari.
