Former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki, former Minister of State (Defence) Musiliu Obanikoro and Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose removed N4,685,723,000 from the account of the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA) between April 4 and November 13, 2014, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has alleged.
This is contained in some documents filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja, where Fayose’s associate Abiodun Agbele, was arraigned yesterday by the EFCC for alleged diversion of the fund. Agbele was arraigned along with three companies – Sylvan Mcnamara Ltd, De privateer Ltd, and Spotless Investment Ltd – on an 11-count charge of money laundering.
He pleaded not guilty, following which his Lawyer Mike Ozekhome (SAN) moved a motion for his bail. But EFCC counsel Johnson Ojogbane objected to the request, arguing that Agbele would run away if granted bail and also interfere with prosecution witnesses.
