•Ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar

The camp of former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari belongs to the prison, following alleged illegal payment of $496 million to the U.S. Government for the purchase of Tucano jets.

The Atiku Support Group said there was no difference in the crime Buhari had committed with that of the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), who has been in detention since 2015 and is currently standing trial for alleged misappropriation of about $2 billion Boko Haram war funds.

The group bared its mind this morning on its Twitter page @Atikusptgrpebon, adding that the courts should take note of the President’s illegal action.

The group tweeted: “I think @MBuhari should go and join Dasuki at Kuje prison because both have committed the same crime. ...#illegal withdrawal.

“So court should take note.”

News Express reports that Nigerian lawmakers have lashed the President over the payment of $496mn for the purchase of Tucano jets without the approval of the National Assembly and even threatened him with impeachment over the issue.
