More stunning revelations are being made about the recent changes at the National Intelligence Agency (NIA). This follows the receipt, on Monday, by members of the House of Representatives Committee on National Security and Intelligence, of briefings from the immediate past Acting Director General Ambassador Muhammed Dauda.

A member of the committee confided that the former Acting DG, who was invited by the committee, met with the members behind closed doors. He reportedly alleged intrigues, blackmail and sleazes amongst members of the Presidential Panel on the Reorganization of the NIA, under the leadership of Ambassador Babagana Kingibe.

The committee members, who analysed a nine-page memo submitted by the former Acting DG, were said to have been informed that Kingibe’s panel held the NIA to a virtual ransom over the $44 million Intervention Fund in the vaults of the agency.

A member of the committee who craved anonymity squealed that part of their discoveries from Ambassador Dauda include the story of how Ambassador Kingibe and the Secretary of the Panel, Abubakar Rufai Ahmed, now the NIA Director General, allegedly extorted huge sums of money from the agency’s erstwhile management.

Ambassador Dauda was also said to have pleaded with the Committee members “to save the jobs of the nine serving Directors of the NIA who may have been penciled for compulsory retirement for denying members of Kingibe’s group from accessing the $44 million.”

A source said last night: “While the Presidency has been running from pillar to post in trying to defend the appointment of Abubakar Rufai Ibrahim as NIA DG, Ambassador Mohammed Dauda’s memo to the House of Representatives and the EFCC seem to have gotten them on the wrong foot as the embattled former Acting DG tendered documents relating to the claims, including the receipt of $2 million allegedly by Ambassador Kingibe.”
