Colonel Ojogbane Adegbe, the aide-de-camp to the former president Goodluck Jonathan has opened up on his role on the N10 billion gift for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The ex-aide to Jonathan, who is presently helping the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) with an investigation over some fraudulent dealings in the previous administration, said that the former special assistant (SA) on domestic affairs to the former president, Waripamowei Dudafa, should be called to account for the cash.
According to The Nation, an EFCC source quoted the ADC to have said that when the suitcases containing the cash were brought as messages for the president, he merely handed them over to Dudafa, adding that military law forbids him from opening any message meant for the president, unless it was clearly stated. “The ADC has spoken with investigators. He said when the suit cases containing the N10billion were brought as messages for the ex-President, he did not open them but he handed over the items to SA Domestic Affairs. “He said as ADC, the military law forbids him from opening any message meant for the President, unless directed by the C-I-C. “So, it is only the SA Domestic Affairs, who has sneaked out of the country, who will need to provide the list of beneficiaries. This is the status of the case. “If Dudafa does not show up, we may declare him wanted in connection with the N10billion cash or seek the court’s permission to attach his property.
