Dasukigate: Buhari’s Ally Returns N100million to EFCC
chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and former military governor of Kaduna state, Jafaru Isa, has returned N100m out of the N170m he reportedly received from embattled former National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki.
The political associate of President Muhammadu Buhari, was grilled for several hours in connection with about N170 million he received from Dasuki.
The APC chieftain and a member of the 19-man Buhari Transition Committee was released after refunding N100million to the anti-graft commission, promising to return the remaining N70million soon, Premium Times reports.
According to a source, some of the suspected recipients of the slush funds who claimed they were not aware the money sent to them was taken from the public till were given opportunities to return what they got from the former NSA but refused.
A close associate of Isa who spoke to Premium Times said that Dasuki put over N100 million into Isa’s account in instalments to buy a house, located on Mohammed Mohammed Avenue, Kano, for the former NSA.
The deposits were in turn made by Isa to the owner of the house, Ali Tukur, in two instalments.
However, the house purchase deal collapsed as Yarima Ngama, a former Minister of Finance, reportedly offered to pay the sum of N150 million cash when Dasuki reneged on the payment agreement.
