Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), at the weekend, stormed the offices of former Vice President Namadi Sambo at the Central Business District of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

The EFCC operatives raided his offices on January 30 in search of evidence allegedly linking him to the ongoing investigation into the $2.1 billion arms purchase scandal.

According to EFCC sources, Sambo is under investigation over allegations that some of the arms deal funds disbursed for political campaigns from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, were routed through his office.

A company owned by the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, Destra Investment, allegedly paid N25 million to one Abba Dabo, a former special adviser to Sambo, in December 2014.

Another source said $50,000 and some documents were found and taken away by the operatives.

Since Dasuki’s arrest, startling revelations about how the money was shared among prominent Nigerians have continued to tumble out.

Many prominent Nigerians and leaders are being indicted for collecting huge sums of money from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA). Sambo’s office was reportedly on a monthly stipend of N20 million from the ONSA. Some presidential aides, including Doyin Okupe, also allegedly benefitted from such slush funds. In November 2015, Dasuki explained his side of the story on the arms procurement saga which has pitted him against Buhari’s government.

He explained that he was never invited to appear before a Presidential Investigative Panel on the procurement of hardware and munitions in the Armed Forces.

In the last two months, the Federal Government has arrested highly-placed Nigerians in connection with the scam. (Daily Sun)
