How ex-NSA paid $40m to Jonathan's cousin
Robert received another N650 million from Dasuki On December 8, 2014, the EFCC said.
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.
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.
However, counsel to the applicant, Chris Uche, EFCC's refusal to release his clients despite a court order is disrespectful to the court.
