A private jet that conveyed $9.3 million cash from Nigeria to South Africa for an arms deal between the two countries, had Nigerian crew members, and passengers from Israel and Austria, new documents obtained by PREMIUM TIMES in Johannesburg have shown.

There were three Nigerians aboard the plane, the documents show.

PREMIUM TIMES obtained the manifest of the jet that transported the huge sum, and has confirmed the identities of the passengers and crew who delivered the controversial package.

South Africa seized the money early September, accusing the Nigerian government of violating its laws regulating the transfer of cash.

Another payment by the Nigerian government for arms to combat the extremist Boko Haram sect, was also confiscated. The second transfer, totalling $5.7 million, was wired through the banks.

The South African ambassador to Nigeria was later quoted as saying the money had been returned to Nigeria, a claim that has yet to be verified.

Details of the first transaction, revealed by a South African newspaper, City Press, said an Israeli and two Nigerians were aboard the airplane that transported the sum to Lanseria airport in South Africa.

The first tranche of the money was conveyed to South Africa on September 5 in two plastic bag suitcases and two hand luggage aboard an airplane belonging to Ayo Oritsejafor, the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.

While the Nigerian government confirmed the transactions, it denied violating any foreign law. The government also refused to provide the names of those aboard the airplane.

In its report, widely quoted in the Nigerian media, City Press said the Israeli passenger, Eyal Mesika, had the key to the combination lock of the suitcases. The paper also said two Nigerian passengers were aboard the plane. It quoted South African law enforcement officials.

The report however did not reveal the identities of the Nigerians, and South African officials also declined to provide those details to PREMIUM TIMES when contacted from Nigeria by telephone.

In an investigation that involved visiting South Africa, PREMIUM TIMES has obtained documents showing details of the transaction, including the flight manifest of the airplane.

The listing shows that beside Mr. Mesika, the only Nigerians on board the aircraft were crew members.

The other two passengers who conveyed the cash were Austrians, the manifest shows.

The two Austrians are named, R. Wolfgang and M. Michael.

The flight crew members of the Project Eagle Air jet with flight number: N808HE were Ojongbede R.T (captain), Fejoku U, (flight officer) and George E.E (flight attendant).

The listing contradicts reports that the other passengers were Nigerians, a claim that set off an intense controversy after the All Progressives Congress, APC, accused a former militant leader, Dokubo Asari, of being one of those aboard the plane.

The APC relied on unverified reports by some news websites [not PREMIUM TIMES] in making the false claim.

Mr. Asari denied the allegation and threatened legal action against Lai Mohammed, the spokesperson of the APC.

In an interview with PREMIUM TIMES at the time, Mr. Asari threatened to physically assault Mr. Mohammed if he failed to get justice in the courts.

“After all the South Africa People have given the names of people on the plane and if by next week we go to court and the court is being manipulated not to give me justice, I will resort to self-help,” he said.

“I have the capacity to resort to self-help. I will not give anybody any apology because if a man has mouth to malign me then I can use what I have to fight for myself.”

  • JI

    This is the begining of the end of the APC.

    PT please republish your reports on the identities of the passengers and see how you have denigrated the sanctity of the Pen profession. All for a morsel of Bread!

    Lai Mohammed is one very irresponsible man that is unfit for public office except in the APC.

    Asari, Please make money with this case ooooooooooo!

    • Salihu Sule Khalid

      Why? Because it is found that the devilish hidden transaction did not take place?
      You are such a wise man.

      • Tom

        Don’t you get tired? You call transaction by the army to procure arms devilish?

        • JI

          same agenda 2016, nor mind the Foolanis jare!

          SS, SE, NC, over Two third of SW and at least fifty percent from NW is enough to give Jonathan a good ride.

          Obasanjo, Tinubu will have their shame. Buhari and Atiku will bite their finger in betrayal

        • Ogom

          It definitely is illegal, at least.. You can deny that all you want, but our $9m s still with the SA government.

        • Salihu Sule Khalid

          Tell me one representative from defence ministry or any establishment that may have responsibility aboard the devilish jet in the devilish affair of the devilish transacrion that highly likely meant to be delivered in the hands of devilish killers.

  • Jeguz

    Eventually the truth has prevailed.

  • Okemute1

    Premium times has finally agreed a price with PDP

    • JI

      Your cup is rather half empty not half full. Did any media do investigative journalism on the issue before they went to town, or they solely releid on a professional liar – LAI?

      It is left for you to continue with the lies by saying PDP, settled PT an arm of the APC do disgrace itself having initially published lies on the issue.

      Mallam slow down, nor be by force to take over the presidency in 2015

    • Shola

      Something higher than what APigC was paying? Interesting!

    • Wähala

      Pawn Times… henceforth!
      They’ve just sold their reputation with this fake exclusive report. Imagine, not knowing the difference between crew members and passengers… in Nigeria, everyone comes with a price. Dirty country, hopeless people. Nonsense!

      • Peter

        Go find out the truth yourself and publish it.

        • Wähala

          Any Editor who does not know the difference between crew members and passengers has agidi brains and must be banned from thinking…. Are they paying me? My comments attract readership to their paper so, I have every right to be disappointed with this watery “exclusive” bullsh*t!

      • Peter

        Maybe because they now realize that you are feeding them with rumours and falsehood and that you have almost damaged their reputation. Leave PT alone.

        • Wähala

          What they will soon realize is they fcuked-up by sending their correspondents all the way to South Africa to find out the names of crew members, instead of passengers… I pity people like you who feed on garbage.

  • Inyang

    The truth is out….thank God for meticulous journalist!

    • Wähala

      What truth? Are passengers same as crew?
      The SA authorities told them of two Nigerian passengers, let Premium Times find out the identities of the passengers… shikena!

      • PieceMeal

        Just for emphasis: Read the report again. the two passengers in the plane, earlier reported as Nigerians by South African officials and media, are now confirmed to be Austrians. Any miracle there? Or just because it doesn’t fit into your expectation…

        • Wähala

          So, South African Law enforcement officers don’t know the difference between “crew members” and “passengers”, ba? This report is for numbskulls like you, not for discerning readers… go-siddon!

  • Shola

    This is the vindication of Asari, coming directly from the enemies mouth. Liar Mohammed has been a liar from birth

    • Wähala

      You be mega-fool, is Nicholas Ibekwe same as Alhaji Lai Mohammed? The clown scammed his employers with this fake “exclusive report” tellin of nothing but names of crew members even the jet’s operators could have given out to my 6yr-old if I really care to know. They can collect Asari’s money but they can’t collect our discerning minds… kapisch?

    • Ogom

      I’m sorry, how does an area boy get “vindicated”?

  • amazing2012

    Instead to think of why foreigners handling your money in the name of purchase of weapons and to who. ? You are busy vindicating people. Is the money and the motive of it also vindicated ?

    • Alcindo Satori

      And that’s how you choose to spin the story now? Swine! ! First agree that APC has been disgraced before talking nonsense.

      • amazing2012

        Ok agreed APC is disgraced and PDP is right then what do you gain ? What is the relevance to Nigerians ? All political parties and politicans are liars, both APC and PDP are the same. The only difference is in magnitude of craziness which should be relevant to us. Now what do you achieved is APC or PDP tell liars ? Please get focus on relevance issues.

        • Alcindo Satori

          firstly, you have to accept the truth and it shall set you free. APC has been peddling lies to destabilize Nigeria and Nigerians all along, and people like you have fallen for it. Relevant issue is what you can do for your country to progress; and not what your country do for you.

        • Kamal Kamoru

          Hahaha! APC and Lai Lie Moh’d fits u guys very well!!
          So it’s now u know ‘relevance issues’???
          When you and wahala and one deranged clown called ‘endingnaija’ were calling everyone on this site Dokubo claiming they were the ones on the jet, you didn’t know it was not a ‘relevance issue’ right’??
          Hypocrites!!!
          Meanwhile, i think the only RELEVANT ISSUE now for you is to go back to school!
          NEVER COME HERE TO SAY ‘RELEVANCE ISSUE’ AGAIN!!
          I dey laff ooo!!!

  • Wähala

    “City Press said the Israeli passenger, Eyal Mesika, had the key to the combination lock of the suitcases. The paper also said two Nigerian passengers were aboard the plane. It quoted South African law enforcement officials” – Premium Times

    • PieceMeal

      What’s really your point? That PT has been paid by PDP to write a false report? To my knowledge, hardly any paper tackles PDP more than PT. So if they dare to report what they claim is the truth, they’ve sold out by your perception? What evidence have you got? And when we have supposedly decent minds like you rush to this kind of conclusion without even the privilege of patience for further facts and analysis, then your accusation that the paper is politically biased seems a misfire…I’m really disappointed at the speed and tokenism of your ruling here.

      • Wähala

        My point is really simple…
        A driver and his bus conductor are not “passengers”. They are the operators of the bus…
        Likewise, “crew members” are not “passengers”. That’s why you read about flight FH423 crashed with 102 passengers and 8 crew members onboard, for instance. Read the deceitful headline as if PT are authoritatively trying to settle issues beyond their capacity. My speed is in my ability to see thru the smoke screen… kapisch?

        • Kamal Kamoru

          Meeeehn! d tin dey pain you ooooo!
          Even Lai Lie Moh’d don close him lying mouth, but u still dey hia dey open yur stinking mouth! APC keeps selling u guys dummies!
          Mugu!!
          Hahahahahaha!
          I dey laff ooo!!

  • 9jaIsFinished

    I just don’t believe this story for some reason. The way PT kept repeating itself before finaly saying they were Austrians and then started slaming APC, for me, that just spoilt the credibility in this so-called “exclusive” story. If the South African authorities refused to release the names of the Nigerians, how did PT just visit South Africa and obtain such sensitive document? I beleive PT have been compromised!

    • Bafetimbi Gomis

      …now the shoe doesn’t fit anymore right? ‘Cause you hate the truth? Swine you are!!

      • Kamal Kamoru

        Hahahaha! E dey pain dem no be small!
        Any person with a modicum of shame would keep QUIET!!

      • 9jaIsFinished

        I only engage intelligent people who have an opinion on the subject matter. You are clearly not one of them!

  • charles

    This is fake news…lk PT now collect money to do politicians bidding…its said dat two Nigerian and Israeli were on board…what r their name?? gullible journalism

    • Wähala

      That’s the problem, there is not one Nigerian in Nigeria who is not affected by the corruption. In their stupid*ty, they failed to see the difference between “crew members” and “passengers” and went ahead to state it was according to South African police/immigration authorites who reveal the identity of the Jew… brown envelope clowns!

  • Chief Ovie Obaro (JP)

    Sir DOKUBO is VINDICATED at last

    ==========================

    Recently, the US govt responded to the accusation by Nigeria of their complicity in the fight against Boko Haram. The US spokesperson gave a list of Military support which it has given Nigeria in 2-3 yrs. Did you hear any mention of 2 Naval warships sent by the US to Nigeria in mid 2011 & 2013 by the so called Spokesperson? The attack ships are the biggest armament received by Nigeria since its civil war ended in 1970. Yet the US tactically refused to mention it in their briefing for obvious reasons – the 2 war ships were given even FREE to help Nigeria protect US investments in the Niger Delta…so, in the heat of the efforts to curtail serial bombings of Boko Haram all over the North by Nigerian armed forces in desert North, the US’s was busy sending war ships to be used in the littoral territories of the Niger Delta several thousands of kilometers in the waters down south.

    …and slow thinking Nigerians, media houses etc did no investigation to unravel this scam by US and bring it to light. Whether intelligence, stupidity or both, one thing is clear, we (continent Nigerians) are our own problem. The same US whose Soldiers were caught urinating on dead Afghan soldiers, whose army maintains a torture enclave at Guantanamo, Iraq and elsewhere, whose Govt lied to invade Iraq etc, now tell you they will not sell guns bcos of human rights records…and you didn’t deem it fit to “investigate” why?…but you can investigate who was in the Jet. Of what significance is the info on who was on the jet? This is how you debase Nigerians within the committee of Nations.

    …and PT will be blocking comments critical of US double or even triple standa. Shame no dey catch una sef? Where do your allegiances lie? With Nigeria abi with US?

  • Warri Boy

    But wait first o! This no be Sunday morning? Una no dey go for Shurch? …or go for morning Islamic lessons? …abi una be Pagans? or day never break for Nigeria?

    • Wähala

      You dey write from inside shurch so bros… wia yusef dey Sunday neva reach? Abegi, go baff with Sapele Water make we commot hia o’jare.

  • Dumbo

    PT has collected bribe for this report. Shame! Why wasn’t the manifest released by FG even when they were involved and after several request by Nigerians? Why did it have to take PT to go to S.A to get the report when the flight was originating from Nigeria? Why the hassle? PT your credibility is at stake. Lies! Lies! Lies!

    • Wähala

      Given that the flight took off from the Presidential Wing of our Abuja Airport… nonsense!

  • MrFesh

    APC jaundiced Nigerians disbelieve everything that shows their spokespeople are liars and the party as a whole a huge deception machine. The sure of losing come 2015 and are doing everything to disrupt the process.

    Now is PT told you boko took over aso rock your all will become constitutions to yourself and infallible.
    Wahala, unapologetically Yoruba, expired and the rest, where are you all? Rumour mongers and cheap blackmailers. Let’s sit back and see if the lying mohammed offers an apology.

    • Wähala

      Premium Times owes her readers an apology for calling driver and bus conductor, “passengers”. They wasted their time sending some brainless reporter to South Africa to find out the names of pilot, co-pilot and flight attendant… Are those the “passengers” even South African authorities confirmed included two Nigerians? Mumu reportage for mugu consumption… Höly Wähala is smarter than that. Go-siddon!

  • Nwa Aba {Biafran}

    Justice must be done to Lai Mohammed
    we will not accept his indirect apology through Premium times
    he must do the right thing or

    • Bassey

      You are very correct. Honourable Dokubo should be allowed to deal mercilessly with the liar called Mohmmed. His lies have become so pungent and almost as contagious as Ebola.

    • Wähala

      Shut-up dia! with your Aba-made brain… are crew members same as passengers? Ode!

      • Nwa Aba {Biafran}

        Argument has turned to crew and passenger. not Asari Dokubo
        your cow brain is behind your inability to understand right and wrong

        • Ojukwu Chukwudi

          Asari is already a terorist, there is no two way about that. So please use your pig brain to think, and mind you Biafra has gone with Chief Ojukwu, so change your name to Uche or Nyamiri dodon doya.

          • Observer

            Nyamiri dodon doya? Evidence you are not Igbo? Please use a Hausa name. Tanx.

        • Wähala

          Did Asari show this reporter his Nigerian/Benin Republic passports for you to exonerate him without knowing his movements? Was Asari not arrested by Cotonou Genderms and chained to the floor in Seme for terrorism-related activities… did Dumbo tell you what those activities were before sending Presido Jet to haul him into Naija like UMYA? What do you know about Asari… agidi brain. Mumu! This hack job is just another of their distractions for their police harassment of Speaker Tambuwal, na dia way… now that elections are around the corner, bombings are no longer en vogue. Aschlecker!

          • Nwa Aba {Biafran}

            Stop displaying you low cow mentality here
            who is the reporter?
            He could be me or you, as i’m posting this from comfort of my bedroom
            Asari doesn’t need Beninos passport as he got Nigerian Ecowas Passport
            the argument is why is APC’s Lai Mohamed chasing shadow
            must he get involved in every gossip in town?
            use your human brain, you wont force your way through terrorism
            we are on the ground for any eventuality. each outcome you will be grossly disastrous to your Caliphate

          • Wähala

            See why I said you have Made-in-Aba brains? Why are you so vehement about Asari’s terrorism reputation, what’s in it for you… are you a thug? The “reporter” in this case if I you permit me to borrow your brains, is Nicholas Ibekwe, nwa nna. Premium Times are based in Abuja, why travel all the way to Zulu land to tell us (with a noisy caption) the names of crew members? Are you that daft as to believe such bulldung? My friend, commot for road biko… before I vex!

          • Nwa Aba {Biafran}

            The gossip was first posted online by New Dimension. What brought ibekwe and premium times on this?
            forum like this are not made for cow head like you
            visit my previous comment take your time,ead properly before coming here
            you

      • Mohstone

        Chei !!! Aba-made brain indeed … I cant stop laughing.

    • Tonnero

      You are a mumu. Lai quoted newspaper reports. Did you expect him to do his own investigations? Can you answer why the government refused to release the flight manifest even as we speak if these guys were harmless?

      • Nwa Aba {Biafran}

        hard lesson to Lai
        he must not jump in to any unverified online news
        because he’s occupying a sensitive post
        But must pay the price soon or later

  • Concerned African

    Liar Mohammed hasn’t seen anything yet. Wait until Asari catches him

    • Tonnero

      Shut up my friend. Is it not the same Asari that was rotting in OBJs jail before Yar’Adua released him? Or is he different from the one picked up by the BENIN authorities causing him to hyperventilate? That is you guys boasted about Egbesu boys and they are now history. Start a fight that you cannot finish and you will know that khaki no be leather. Noisemaking and actually fighting are different things entirely……

    • Wähala

      Aborigine, our noisy neighbors! Where’s your Ogidigbodigbo of Africa… ati Henry Okah, caged MEND terrorist?
      You can threaten each other swinging on trees in your Gbaramutu Kingdoms but get this into that your ogogoro-damaged brain, wars are not won on newspaper pages. Tompolo may have prevented Dumbo from going home, but if Asari make the wrong move, better to remind him of “The Alamo”…go figure!

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    I hope Nigerians can now see through the cloud of wicked and misleading criminal campaign run by Lai Mohammed and his extremist anarchist political thugs who call themselves the APC.

    • Wähala

      What discerning Nigerians can see is the stupid*ty and intellectual level of journalism in Nigeria today. Claiming they went all the way to South Africa to find out the names of crew members is crass at best… the most annoying thing about this report is not the noisy headline, but the run-around before telling us nothing. Are driver and bus conductor part of the passengers in a bus? Look at it that way and maybe, you will be able to see the folly in the “investigative report”…my brown ahss!

      • Jujubeans

        @Wahala LoL! My thoughts exactly, extremely annoying. PM why was there no mention of Austrian citizens from the beginning? After all we heard of the Israeli citizen. Not exclusive and not impressive!

        • Wähala

          Don’t mind them. They fcuked-up big time with this yeye report. Those Austrians are what we call, “fall guys”…low-life criminals paid to accept responsibility for crimes they did not commit. Otherwise, logis suggests that SA authorities would have named them along with the Jew at the initial stage. PT simply blew it, exposed themselves as just another Naija newspaper… jibiti publication!

  • Sharia_Haram

    Fake news.

  • Ojukwu Chukwudi

    Ok, Premium times, exonerate Ayo the weapon smuggler. Secondly, why did Nigerian government gave foreigners money meant for the security of the country? Are we still under colonial government? Will sane government do that? Will Israel, or Australia ever give Nigerians money meant for the security of the country? Premium times, don’t waste your time vindicating Asari Dokubo, he is a habitual terrorist, everybody in the world knows that. Ok, now tell us where is the money? What happened with the $20 Billion? Exonerate Ngo baby, Diezanie, and Jonadaft from this stealing is not corruption.

    • Wähala

      Don’t mind them. That’s the problem with Nigerians… louder than a church bell until water enter their mouths!
      They went to find out names of crew members and want gullible Nigerians to believe it’s same as passengers… Brown Envelope journalism, indeed!

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        The last time I checked,Premium Times has never in it’s history being Pro-Jonathan so shut up and accept the open fact that you tarnished the image of innocent Nigerians only for the reasons of hate and bigotry !!
        The right thing to do is to eat your humble pie with equanimity……..apologise now !!

        • Wähala

          The only image tarnished here belongs to Premium Times with their screaming headline…
          Obviously, they forgot that I am a regular reader and like a forensic scientist, I scan thru every line 2x. They owe us apology for selling-out. Ask Dumbo to publish the “passenger list”…even my grandmother could have found out the names of the crew onboard by calling the jet operators. Agidi brain you have… Didinrin!

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            The 3 crew members have been named and the foreign nationals named. The state of South Africa will not mislead the world.South Africa is a democracy !

          • Wähala

            The South African law enforcement officers confirmed that two (2) Nigerian “passengers” were onboard that flight along with a Jew, Eyal Maseki… are you telling the world you do not know the difference between crew and passenger? Well, that’s why you hear/read about, “flight FH234 with 102 passengers and 8 crew members has gone missing”, for instance. Locally put, are bus driver and conductor counted as passengers? Answer that!

          • Mohstone

            I will advise you, Wahala, to stop wasting your time on these guys. Clearly they have no conscience left in them. They are deaf, dumb and blind. Simply put.

          • endingNaija

            Pastor Reno Omokri an Tawanda here are your words “South Africa is a functioning democracy” while… as you know under your Ijaw President, Nigeria is not!!! Why? (i) Jonathan used police to stop the work of the Nigerian House of Rep and (ii) your Ijaw President’s party PDP imported thugs who are non-members TO VOTE INSIDE Ekiti assembly and the police under your Ijaw president SUPERVISED that voting by thugs INSIDE ekiti assembly house!!! See how Nigeria is not a functioning democracy under your Ijaw President as implied in your post Reno?

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            All democracies have trying times…remember South African miners were massacred at point blank range by police.If the South African congress complex were to be invaded ,I think the Police would have reacted . Failures do not mean that the democracy does not function,no democracy is perfect !

          • endingNaija

            So? President Jonathan and his party-PDP- have rights to import thugs who are NOT members of the Ekiti assembly to vote and pass law in Ekiti assembly? And that law which thugs voted on and passed is a Nigerian law-abi? So? President Jonathan and his police have rights to supervise the passage of law by thugs in a Nigerian house of assembly-abi? President Jonathan’s police has rights to tear gas the speaker of the Nigerian hosue of representatives-Tambuwal and prevent him from doing his job-abi?

        • Jujubeans

          Wahala is on point!! Are passengers the same as Crew? PT and all other newspapers reported that besides the Israeli, there were 2 nigerian PASSENGERS on board. Now we are reading ( exclusively) that there were 3 Nigerian CREW. A begi jare… Some of us actually passed English Comprehension at school.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            You can live in your alternate world of deluded fantasies for as long as you wish…..the world has moved on !

          • Jujubeans

            That’s your way.. PeopleDeceivingPeople. You want us to just forget scandals and carry on. My people don’t forget the history of this story. Pls Google “City Press South Africa Nigerian Arms” and read all the original news items on this story including one from widely respected international news agency Reuters. The original story was 3 PASSENGERS: 2 Nigerians and an Israeli were held. That was not APC doing the reporting o! No Austrians were mentioned then. How come all of a sudden we hear the 2 Nigerians were infact Austrians?

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Because,the APC controlled media was feeding you bigoted rubbish based on possibilities,probabilities and speculations , Lai has messed up your brains !

          • Wähala

            If Alhaji Lai “messed up”…ask Nicholas Ibekwe to feed us passenger list, not names of pilots and mechanics. And damn sure not names of flight controllers!

          • Mohstone

            E be like say dis APC dey itch you for yansh no be small o!!!!

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Don’t be silly !! every sovereign nation has a right to acquire or purchase weapons either directly from the manufacturers or through legitimate 3rd parties.You need to inform yourself about the modus operandi of the international arms market before exposing your bigotry driven ignorance in public !!

      • Ojukwu Chukwudi

        I will not be silly as you are. Thank God you noted i am not silly hence the essence of advising not to be like you. Ok, mention one instance where Israel, or Australia invited Nigerians to go and buy arms for their countries. Just site one example when Israel prime minister thought of visiting Nigeria, te way your clueless always pack thieves and our stolen money to Israel.

        • Nwa Aba {Biafran}

          which your stolen money?
          cow money or oil money?

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          Please mention the amount of weapons exports from Nigeria,also name the weapons manufacturing companies in Nigeria ? I warned you earlier to stop your silly and unreasonable attitude !

          • Wähala

            See how desperation has beclouded your mind, your brain has turned to agidi…
            Whatever happened to our defense industries company in Kaduna? Didn’t the Nave showcase a “submarine”, the Army a “tank” and the Air Force, a kite they called, “drone”…all, conduits through which they siphoned away our common patrimony? Some people must be banned from thinking…

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

And that you his tribesmen are ready to defend that UNETHICAL character? Or what are you saying exactly?

  • Warri Boy

    I have always believed that one day, Premium Times will be delivered of its seemingly incurable blight of bad belle reporting. Thank God, the demons of lies have been ejected…and for once, the effort has been made to expose the many lies of the APC and its notoriously dubious spokesman, who relied on rumours to accuse venerable Sir Dokubo of complicity in the security issue of arms deal.

    Just like Fani Kayode, who left darkness for light and never looked back, we hope Premium Times will have the courage to remain on the side of truth regardless of the daily threats of violence by APC leaders should they not win the next elections. I had begun to wonder about the seemingly mute posture exhibited by media houses at the blatant display of criminality, mischief & irresponsibility by opposition politicians who have made the issuance of periodic and incessant threats a permanent code of conduct. But media houses need to do more…e.g, reporting that ‘hunters’ have chased “well armed” Boko Haram and even killed over 50 terrorists with their bows, arrows, cutlasses and sticks (with photos of hunters with sticks), is sickening and maniacally ridiculous…especially when such reports fail to do the logical reasoning to ascertain the feasibility of such spurious claim. We hope PT will desist from such mischief forthwith.

    • Jujubeans

      But APC did not report the original story that 3 passengers: 2 Nigerians and an Israeli were held. That was City Press South Africa, Reuters, Premium Times, Vanguard , BBC .. Etc etc. Did they all get it wrong?? APC then said one of the passengers was Asari Dokubo. Which was never verified. Today we hear from PT that infact there were no Nigerian passengers on board. That is just ridiculous and I’m tempted to stop reading PT in protest at this lazy, poor attempt at journalism.

      • Smith Scott

        Who brought the name of Asari into it just to deceive Nigerians to grab power? APC! To achieve what? Just to make sure the war against Boko Haram is rubbished to weaken both Presidency and the army. Boko Haram is a sector of APC.

        • Chiemele

          The spate of impeachments and cross overs indicate there is no love lost between both Political parties so don’t you wonder why the President and PDP has not exposed these APC BH sponsors publicly?

Rivers, Ekiti, Adamawa, Bayelsa, Edo state katakata, not to mention Chibok girls and Boko Haram. Your brother is surely going to HELL.. No amount of Israeli pilgrimage will save him. But before that.. He will first be voted out, then face a gruesome trial for corruption and abuse of office, before finally, spending a few years rotting in jail.

      • Smith Scott

        Everyday you guys choose lie to deceive Nigeria. The 20billions thing was lie, Asari in the boat was lie, Ojuku resurrected another lie

    • Ette

      Just as he is using the Chadian President and his associates to supply deadly weapons to boko haram so he can continue to rule. They have been arrested in Sudan. Blood of innocent NIGERIANS shed by GEJ to keep power is rising in judgment against him and his cohorts. It is now revealed that he used foreigners to steal our money to buy arms for boko haram. May God deal with him and his supporters the way they are dealing with Nigerians. Amen.

  • Tonnero

    It is amazing how Nigerians think. It seems PDPigs and APC supporters alike believe this exonerates the GEJ administration. How does the fact that the other guys on the plane are Austrians and not Nigerians (except for the three crew members) exonerate the administration? What it does is to deepen the mystery. It now means, if true, that the Nigerian Government ferried money illegally using foreigners claiming it was buying weapons in the black market. Extremely strange story. What is the Austrian angle? Who are these guys? However, if true, this is no less of an indictment on government for running our security this way, violating the laws of a friendly country and depending on faceless persons for our security supplies. It is also clearly wrong for the government to carry such large amounts without an audit trail. This is creating massive room for corruption.

    • Smith Scott

      Are you so blind by Lai that you don’t understand the meaning of Independent verification?

      • endingNaija

        These are bottomlines: (i) Who gave out the contract? The govt of President Jonathan. (ii) Who violated Nigerian laws by ferrying RAW CASH in space from Nigeria to South Africa? -The Jonathan presidency, the private arms company, and CAN President Ayo Oritsejafor’s company. (iii) Given Nigerian paddy paddy business environment, is it possible for a non PDP , non-affiliated person to get (a) the arms contract and (b) to get the air contract to fly the arms? The answer is No. So? Ayo Oritsejafor’s airline company got the contract for devious and unclean usual Nigerian reasons. (iv) In all these did Ayo Oritsejafor not use his private jet meant for God’s duties to make blood money thru purchase of arms? Yes Ayo Oritsejafor did. To fault this post, please deal with the questions.

    • GbemigaO

      You don’t seem to get it. This investigation only brought a new fact. Asari Dokubo was not on board as claimed by APC. This does not exonerate the government of Nigeria over the money issue.

      • Wähala

        How does Asari not being or being on the flight exonerate Dumbo of money laundering charges…
        Do you remember at all why the investigating Magistrate seized the money in the first place? What reason did s/he give for confiscating the money? As long as the Nigerian Govt. refuses to tell Nigerians exactly who were on that flight, every Nigerian is free to draw their own conclusions… your “fact” therefore, is not my fact. Kapisch?

        • Chima

          @Wahala, The comedian in Chief of PTimes.

          It was you that brought the story of Asari Dokubo being in Prison in SA having been caught along with the Isreali smuggling money into `SA. And when Asari said he was in Saudi you said it doesn’t exonerate him.

          I don’t know between you and Lie Mohammed who rambles out more comedy of lies.

          • Wähala

            I’m certain Asari was on that flight…
            Ask Dumbo, not Nicholas Ibekwe, for the passenger list. The flight took off from the Presidential Wing of Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja. Premium Times did not step an inch to furnish this tale from Zulu land, their caption is cheap propaganda I take serious umbrage with. Asari is a terrorist capable of anything, he has a track record of arrests for “terrorism-related activities” according to Interpol records. What else can I say that you haven’t heard about the criminal? Odeku, biko!

    The problem with Nigeria, is lack of unity of purpose. America tried to kill Fidel castro, they killed malcolm X, JF Osama and other shody deals they did to keep the country one and united yet it wasnt turned into a political affair. In Nigeria, Boko Haram has exotic American made weapons, but its a sin for the government to get arms. Yet Nigerian are bikering because of election , lies are being told here and there. Pls pls pls when shall stop seeing beyond our noses and stop using national security to play politics. To the best of my knowledge BH is made up of largely foreigners trying to annex Nigeria and steal our resources. Are fools on this forum worried about the development that chadian president defrauded Nigeria of huge sums of money in BH negotiation only for us to realise that he procures arms for BH who is fighting Nigeria.When shall we focus on National security and avoid turning everything into political campaign and bikering

      You need strong leadership and a clear vision to implement what you suggest. Do you seriously think Goodluck aJonathan has provided at least those two elements in the last four years? I for one don’t. And fortunately in the hard fought democracy we now have (which Goodluck is trying to destroy) the only way to get rid of poor leadership is via the political process.

  • Otitokoro

    I have some observations and questions for Premiumtimes on this report. 1. You all said the airline that transported the cash for arms is owned by Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor-right? And that airline is run by a NIGERIAN COMPANY in which Pastor Oritsejafor ADMITTED HE HAS RESIDUAL INTEREST (whatever that means or intended to achieve) IN. Right? 2. This airline must have its own flight manifest because all allied bodies(airlines, aviation authorities etc) involved in a flight must have the manifest- It is THE LAW! right? 3. Based on 1 and 2: why do you Premiumtimes have to go ALL THE WAY to South Africa to “INVESTIGATE” to obtain flight manifest when that same manifest can be obtained from the NIGERIAN AIRLINE IN NIGERIA? No Nigerian reporter needs to go to South Africa to do this. so? if this is true and you make an issue of GOING TO SOUTH AFRICA to “obtain” what you could “obtain” IN LAGOS /ABUJA , Nigeria and you did not do THEN YOU PREMIUMTIMES HAVE GIVEN A LOT AWAY-Look this is simple and basic reasoning based on aviation practices. So I am saying that something is missing and curious in your report and it is NOT funny. Why? Nigeria has serious ethical challenges and this report seems to be riddled with this ethical challenge (4) if you were not able to obtain that manifest in Lagos/Abuja, Nigeria from the Nigerian airline companies, tell us why? If the south african authorities said “two Nigerian” passengers and your “investigation” all the way to south africa “revealed” “two australian” passengers, you ought to have completed YOUR INVESTIGATION (while in South Africa) THAT TOOK YOU ALL THE WAY TO SOUTH AFRICA and ask the South African authorities the basis of the difference between “the two Nigerian passengers” which they used their mouth to reveal and “the two australian passengers” which your “investigation” “revealed” (4) The South African aviation authorities used their mouths to say “two Nigerian” and “one Israeli” passengers were in the plane. Why did they say so and suddenly Premiumtimes “discovered” in the same South Africa that “no Nigerian passenger” was in the plane but “two australians” were in the plane? (5) Why did South Africa name the “One Israeli passenger” then and did not name either the ” two australian passnegers” or “the two Nigerian passengers”? Premiumtimes you need to answer these questions for your “investigation” that TOOK YOU ALL THE WAY TO SOUTH AFRICA for something you could obtain in Lagos/Abuja Nigeria to complete. Finally, it is both not funny but amusing to me (I just chuckle small cynically), why you have to obtain in South Africa what you could obtain in Lagos/Abuja Nigeria!!! See what I mean PT?

  • Dules Forrester

    Editor Premium Times,

    Nigeria’s $9.3m remains seized in South Africa

    Nigeria’s $9.3million remains seized in South Africa because the forfeiture order hasn’t been lifted.
    President Jonathan is either scared or unable to direct his Attorney-General (Adoke) to file an affidavit.
    Without an affidavit from attorney-general Adoke Mohammed, the forfeiture will crystallize as final order.
    The reported idle talk by Jonathan’s appointees that no law was violated in South is just nonsense, really.
    In law, the taste of the pudding is in the eating: the South African court is the right place to show innocence.

  • Chief Ovie Obaro (JP)

    Only few months ago, in the heat of political rumblings, almost all the Northern governors and some elements from presidency were summoned to US where they were meant to resolve Nigerian issues with a relatively unknown US diplomat in Washington. I felt hugely embarrassed. Governors rushing onto planes to fly for 9 hours+, to go and be insulting themselves before ordinary US white house diplomatic staff?…and one of such Governors is today a presidential candidate. Imagine!… But the US was a colony of Britain just like Nigeria… and US is not a member of the so called “Common wealth”…and no Nigerian leader of past yrs has been smart enough to ask questions.

    It is sickening the caliber of people thrown up as presidential aspirants in Nigeria. With the array of brilliant individuals left, right and centre, nothing can be more irritating than parading such visibly clueless unpolished crooks and individuals who have no record of performance in public or private sectors but riding on ethnicity, constitute nothing but nuisance…and it means Nigeria is doomed for life. Some of them have accrued state resources to themselves in Pension benefits, one other has had the luxury of sleeping on a N50m bed at the expense of Teachers whose salary he cut to save money to buy the bed, while another has made his state an enclave of bunkers and supply base to Islamic terrorists. Continent Nigerians with integrity, where art thou?

    Hmm…! I smell rat. Something is missing. So the South Africans were so drenched in ‘sepe’ that two white Australians became two black Nigerians? Why travelled all the way to Jo’burg to obtain manifest that originated from Nigeria?

    If we are to end insurgency, we must do it the right way and not by some cabals siphoning cash to their pocket in the name of joining the fight against insurgency.
