The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has blocked the accounts of a former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki, and others implicated in the $15billion arms deals. The Post No Bill (PNB) measure might remain in force until when either the fate of all those affected has been determined or after an agreement has been sealed on plea bargain.
The suspects, who are still groaning over the blockage, have been begging the anti-graft agency for reprieve. According to investigation by our correspondent , some of those affected include ex-Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh; ex-Chiefs of Air Staff, Air Marshals Adesola Amosu and Mohammed Dikko Umar; ex-Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke; ex-Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro; ex-Governor Attahiru Bafarawa; ex-Minister of Finance, Bashir Yuguda; Governor Ayodele Fayose; ex-Deputy Governor Iyiola Omisore; top former military chiefs; more than 30 companies and others.
Findings confirmed that some of the suspects have between three and five accounts in different banks which they used to perpetrate the fraud.
