Jonathan’s aide gave me $4 million cash inside Presidential Villa, witness tells court

Waripamowei Dudafa

A witness at the ongoing trial of Waripamo-Owei Dudafa, an aide of former President Goodluck Jonathan, on Monday told a federal court in Lagos that he received $4 million in cash from the defendant.

Murtala Abubakar, a bureau de change operator, said he received a total of N1.6 billion from Mr. Dudafa through five companies – Pluto Properties and Investment Limited, Avalon Global Property, Rotato Interlink Services, Seagate Property and Ebiwise Services Limited – between 2013 and 2015.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had arraigned Mr. Dudafa, a former Senior Special Assistant to Mr. Jonathan, and Joseph Iwejuo on a 23-count charge of concealment, retention of proceeds of crime, and failure to furnish information, before Justice Mohammed Idris of the Lagos Division of the Federal High Court.

Mr. Abubakar, led in evidence by Rotimi Oyedepo, counsel to the EFCC, said he had known Mr. Dudafa since his days as a Commissioner for Local Government in Bayelsa State under the administration of Governor Timipre Sylva.
The witness also told the court that the only relationship between the two of them was forex transaction that continued up to the time Mr. Dudafa became a personal assistant to President Jonathan.

“He (Mr. Dudafa) usually send two of his staff, Festus and Jahman, with dollars in order to change same and deposit the naira equivalent into specific accounts he provides via text messages,” said Mr. Abubakar.

The witness said he received those text messages from Mr. Dudafa on his Samsung mobile phone. The mobile phone and an Ownership Attestation Form were admitted and marked as Exhibits E and E1 respectively.

When asked whether all the instructions on how to disburse the money were received via text messages, Mr. Murtala replied in the affirmative; but added that in the last transaction, Mr. Dudafa invited him to the Presidential Villa and handed to him $4 million cash.

The witness was confronted with exhibits A – B3 in which he identified all the transactions that transpired between himself and Mr. Dudafa from 2013 to 2015 both from his companies’ accounts and his personal account.

“I can confirm that all the dollars received during the transactions came from him,” Mr. Abubakar said.

When it was time for the cross-examination of the witness, the defendants’ counsels, Gboyega Oyewale and Sunday Abumeri, requested for an adjournment.

The judge adjourned till September 27 for cross-examination.

  • BABUYANMA

    Can someone tell me how any country in the world can survive this much looting and stealing by jonathan. Why is this not treason?. Why are Nigerians not arresting jonathan and mama patience?

    • Benny

      I surely underestimated the level of Nigerians gullibility until I read your post. Cases are not determined by what the prosecutor witness but by the incontrovertible evidences lay before the court. Activate you brain!

      • BABUYANMA

        The Italian seized Mussolini and hang him upside down to set Italy free. Why are Nigerians so patient with jonathan and his biafrian gang. They all should be slaughtered and their bodies displayed on the streets

        • aisha Buhari ati Abacha nko

          if Nigerians had seized Bingo Buhari over the his theft of 2.8b he would not be here with us—if Nigerians had seized aisha buhari and burnt her alive on the stakes–she would not have been here to impose her dirty Halliburton soul on us–again abi—————-

          • BABUYANMA

            A good dirty slap, and you Ibolas will do what you are expected to do.

            Ibolas,wow you had it.

        • veritas

          he was serving prime minister when that was done to him not when he was outta office. Bad example dude

        • emmanuel

          waiting for your counsel to be executed while you dey suffer Oil shortage and eventual grounding of Nigeria

      • Burning Spear

        did Nigeria not survive after buhari stole 2.8b from the Niger delta

        • BABUYANMA

          LIAR. A summary execution of jonathan and mama patience will get fools like you to be quiet.

          • Burning Spear

            In summary, a thief cannot judge a thief.

            Obj in last week visit of mr integrity alhaji bingo Buhari————-to his palatial palace acquitted mr bingo buhari of the 2.8billion dollar fraud in the Northern Nigeria Oil Petroleum Company headed then by mr bingo buhari. Question is: Can a thief judge a thief, Nigerians am asking this question once more? Has Nigerians forgotten how our money was being seized by late idi amin of uganda during obj’s regime? Could that be part of the 2.8billion dollars that was discovered in the Midland bank–which went missing under baba? Buhari was the minister of petroleum under obasanjo, n all of a sudden obasanjo became a judge n acquitted buhari of the missing money. Nigerians am asking does a thief judge a thief justly?—–Or can two ex convicts to a crime ever accept guilt again after their release from prison on compassionate grounds–

          • BABUYANMA

            We are not interested in no story. We want the money looted by Jonathan, Mama FROG Patience, Denzani, Ngozi Iweala and Pius Anyim, and all of them should be executed in Bar Beach and televised

          • Anasieze Donatus

            Bar Beach cannot take them,Atlantic Ocean so that they will meet with Osama their fellow terrorist. IJAWS ARE ECONOMIC TERRORIST,ALL AND JUST EXCEPTION OF 1%

          • Man_Enough

            At least you agree that Jonathan and his gang are thieves. Your only irk is that buhari being a thief (as you believe) should not be the person to judge them. Notwithstanding whatever you may take our president to be, it falls in his line of duty to bring enemies of Nigeria to justice. He swore before God and man to do so.

          • Aisha Buhari ati amaechi nko

            who stole my 2.8b–from the South south? All these comsmetic shows designed to deceive 9jas will————fail——Again was that why Buhari refused to show up at the late Justice Oputa Panel–did it include the money seized by Idi Amin—justice demands that buhari resign his job as president and go clear his name on the 2.8b ati his certificate scandal–Less I forget–and that of his wife the Halliburton case——————–

Buhari who allegedly wired $170,000.00 in bribe to disgraced Congressman Williams J. Jefferson in 2002.

      A 16-count indictment, returned by a federal grand jury in Alexandria, Va., charged Jefferson with solicitation of bribes from Nigeria and other places, honest services wire fraud, money laundering, obstruction of justice, violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, racketeering, and conspiracy.

      The indictment alleges that from in or about August 2000 through in or about August 2005, Jefferson, while serving as an elected member of the U.S. House of Representatives, used his position and his office to corruptly seek, solicit and direct that things of value be paid to Jefferson and his family members in exchange for his performance of official acts to advance the interests of people and businesses who offered him the bribes.

    Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday told an Abuja High Court that a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nasir El-Rufai and two of his officials unilaterally revoked some juicy plots of land and allocated same to themselves, their relatives and their companies.

    Sunday Idowu, a former operative of the EFCC made the disclosure while being led in evidence by the commission’s lawyer, Adebayo Adelodun, in continuation of trial of the former minister who is facing an eight-count of abuse of office.

    The two other accused persons are the Director General, Abuja Geographic Information System (AGIS), Atine Jubrin and former General Manager, AGIS Ismail Iro.

    Mr Idowu, an Inspector of Police gave detailed steps taken by his investigative team in unravelling facts behind the accusations against the accused persons.

    “We interacted with interested parties notably Abuja Geographical Information Services (AGIS), Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST), Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) among others who gave us insight into what actually happened,” the police officer said.

    He said that his team identified an official memo written by a senior official of FCDA advising against the irregular conversion of the plots. The case late died a natural death—because of the Fulani tribal marks of el rufai

        Think, if you will about how you are just taking stories after story designed to instigate you… Were these looters there in the 80s…? How come things were in serious decline then? Just remember that the same person that is leading the campaign against ‘looters’ is still insisting that Abacha did not loot..

          Such disposition make people to accept that there are tribal dispositions which you cannot controvert.
          There was also the man who released over $16 billion for IPP and stole everything, $9.7 billion and also stole everything.
          How about the one who cleaned out Nigeria in a span of 14 months after Abacha with over $15 billion?
          If Jonathan get $10 billion e go don craze by now.

      Please note that sensationalising issues to remain relevant is heinous.
      When the last administration seized several Newspaper in a span of two days and when they discovered what they did was an error, they compensated the proprietors, yet that money was also called loot, eventually sensationalised and seized from them. Then you likes also sang your cheap songs.

The Naira is sliding its way to the abyss, the technically defeated Boko Haram is rampaging right now, somewhere on the fringes of the sahel. Meanwhile lies and propaganda is all that down- spirited Nigerians are hearing everyday, from a quasi – military junta.

    • Was efcc created 2 haunt Ijaws

      Political interference in the EFCC’s activities weakened the fight against corruption over the last one year. Political

      interference by the present adminstration under Buhari in most of EFCC’s policies undermined the EFCC’s effectiveness in reducing corruption

      in Nigeria. The first hypothesis was tested under the

      sub-heading, Obasanjo’s Regime (1999-2007), and we found out that such cases as the N81

      billion Identity Card scam, the uninvestigated N250, 000 credited into the accounts of the

      members of the National Assembly, the EI-Rufai’s Privatization scandal, the Julius

      Makanjuola’s case, the many private establishments owned by Obasanjo etc, which were not

      investigated by the EFCC due to Presidential involvement and now the case of Amaechi funding of the election of Buhari, Dambazua and the theft of over 900m by Prof Yakubu now head of INEC. These interference and, fear of indictment by the powers that be in APC

      confirmed our hypothesis that political interference in the EFCC’s activities weakened the fight

      against corruption. In that a holistic investigation of the government of Buhari in all the cases of corruption petitions sent to Efcc are yet to receive the much needed attention.

  • Efcc shields Mrs abacha

    A day after Mrs Abacha, wife of former Nigerian military dictator, late General Sani Abacha directed a tirade at Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka for criticizing her husband’s reign of terror and corruption, lawyers have obtained a 42-page document detailing the scale, spread and ruthlessness with which the late dictator — in collusion with his associates —which equally saw Buhari shield Abacha from the billions of dollars he stole during his military presidency also.

    Tendered at the United States District Court of Columbia by the Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section, Criminal Division of the United States Department of Justice, the document is damning. It also implicated the late son of the ruler, Ibrahim Abacha; his second son, Mohammed Abacha; his associate, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu; former National Security Adviser (NSA), Ismaila Gwarzo; associate of the Abacha family, Alhaji Ahmadu Daura; then Minister of Finance, Chief Anthony Ani; lawyer and associate of the Abacha family, David Umaru, in the use of phony offshore companies to divert billions of dollars of Nigerian state funds into their private accounts in-country, and overseas. Already, ins spite of the clean bill of health handed to the Abacha family that Buhari served with all his heart, the Swiss authorities are known to have returned billion without any touching the wife who now owns a University in the North–Since the inception of the anti corruption war no Norther from the Fulni tribe has ever been indicted in Nigeria for corruption by EFCC–often headed by the elites from the Fulani North-

      You omitted a variable. The same variable that was there in 1983 when the recession last happened. Let’s call this constant GMB.

      So if we look at the 1983 equation thus:

      Oil money Squandering + Poor socioeconomic policies + GMB = RECESSION

      and the 2016 (more appropriately)

      Dollar looting + Dollar transfers + Poor socioeconomic policies + GMB = RECESSION

      Something has to be said of the Constant, don’t you think?

      I had to take out infrastructure development on account of the details I was inundated with about the work on railways, agricultural policies, roads, airports, schools etc… I understand for example, that he added 22 silos to the 11 that have been there since independence… then went ahead and stocked them to capacity… I could go on.

      • blackdove

        Ignorance is not an excuse for outright lies. Go and read your political history in regards to how Buhari’s intervention saved Nigeria from economic collapse 1983/84/85. While you are at that, also look at the debt profile/ foreign reserve and exchange rate during that period.
        Your problems and those of your like minds are simply physical and mental laziness. There is no easy way out for real and sustainable progressive economic and infrastructural development. China locked up their borders for 10 years in the 80’s, with zero foreign importation. That is why China is an economic force to reckon with this day. Ordinary ban on rice and sugar importation, coupled with single treasury account, you and your co-travelers are crying blue murder.

          Did he insult anybody. you response brings to conclusion you are a foot soldiers to the failed old Biafra war generation of men who still want those of us born between 1975 to 2000 to fight part 2 of their previous war. Nigeria was United since 1999. even the military rule days we had peace, now PMB comes for election on his fourth attempt in and in two years we are divided on ethnic grounds. who cares about all the other crap. Unity matters more. do you know how many children will die during this war you are beating the drum for? those of you who havent fought in or seen war are calling for it. And this time around it wont be like the 1967 slaughter of one side. technology is available to design newer weapons systems in a room in days and used to Neutralise 2000 men. The world has changed. so if i was you i would support my own generation of youths to seize power 2019 and fix the country PMB, GEJ, OBJ old demonic men of that generation can never fix Nigeria.

I sat to listen to so much embellished tripe during campaigns and STILL some of you have not even gone to get the real facts. People that do not understand economics are talking about collapse… nonsense.

          I suppose you think I am one of the airheads that was raised and educated on social networks ba? Well the process of ‘saving’ Nigeria left it in a recession with people queuing for food. Please..while you are looking at the debt profile, please also look at the population…

          Physical and mental laziness? In what form if I may ask…? In the form that will sit and believe when a man claims there are no railways without going to find out…? Only to come and celebrate the same person launching things he said LIED did not exist?

          Forget China. They are not a democracy. You do not have anything in common besides being humans. YOU should stop being mentally lazy and drawing references from things you can not relate to. China is what it is because of how they approached THEIR issues… Nigeria is a mess now because we are trying the same things that FAILED in 1983 and since then

          I don’t know what co-travelers you are referring to but I see another evidence of your perpetual ineptitude in the last sentence. The TSA that you are touting like some silver bullet was indeed concocted by the same people you called clueless… I laugh when people like you talk like this new bunch of yahoos could have successfully come up with a framework to implement the TSA system. Ordinary implementation was carelessly done and is resulting in more and more casualty in the finance sector…

Bingo Buhari supervised the smuggling of 53 suitcases filled with cash through the MMA against the protests of General Tunde Idiagbon and ironically, Abubakar Atiku, the then Assistant Comptroller of the Customs who later became the Vice President and a compromised politician himself. This smuggling of the suit cases were supervised by his ADC, Col. Mustapha Jokolo now the Emir of Gwandu.

      are you referring to 18 suitcases of foreign exchange in 1985? OR THE FOREX collected from CBN for frequent foreign trips and converted at mallams street shop or that handed over to the mallam at the Villa before 2015 May 29 or those still handed over to new set of mallams now?

      • veritas

        lol. thats a good one bro.

      • Adrusa

        Yes, Nigeria went into recession in 2016 because of 18 suit cases of “forex” that was BROUGHT into Nigeria 30 years earlier. Brilliant!

      Our Govt Don’t Know How Long Recession Will Last”. – Kemi Adeosun.

      Nigeria’s finance minister, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, who in an interview stated that the current economic recession in the country would soon be over has made a u-turn claiming that the incompetent Buhari’s government do not have a clue when the self inflicted economic recession will be over.

    Political interference in the EFCC’s activities weakened the fight against corruption over the last one year. Political

    interference by the present adminstration under Buhari in most of EFCC’s policies undermined the EFCC’s effectiveness in reducing corruption

    in Nigeria. The first hypothesis was tested under the

    sub-heading, Obasanjo’s Regime (1999-2007), and we found out that such cases as the N81

    billion Identity Card scam, the uninvestigated N250, 000 credited into the accounts of the

    members of the National Assembly, the EI-Rufai’s Privatization scandal, the Julius

    Makanjuola’s case, the many private establishments owned by Obasanjo etc, which were not

    investigated by the EFCC due to Presidential involvement and now the case of Amaechi funding of the election of Buhari, Dambazua and the theft of over 900m by Prof Yakubu now head of INEC. These interference and, fear of indictment by the powers that be in APC

    confirmed our hypothesis that political interference in the EFCC’s activities weakened the fight

    against corruption. In that a holistic investigation of the government of Buhari in all the cases of corruption petitions sent to Efcc are yet to receive the much needed attention.

    Both Oyegun and Tinubu have been set-up by the demons for their eventual fall from the APC. I sense that these men have prepared their own person fro the APC Chairman.
    Watch the drama play out.
    My advise SS, SE, SW, NC do a century long reconciliation and healing, not about party issues first. Then negotiate 2019 and do a thorough upstage. Tinubu know thyself and retreat from self-righteousness.
    This trend is no more about Oyegun, it is about the devils on the prowl, same way Osinbajo has been gagged and Fowler cannot even give you your usual greedy cuts from FIRS.
    It is never too late – 100 years is past and those who cried wrong amalgamation would not do something about it because of personal interest?
    Buhari appointed 13 heads of Parastatals yesterday, ostensibly to put the head of Bureau of Public Enterprises in place; who would help execute the sale of Nigeria. So make una know say them dey bent on executing all their eveil agenda.

  • Public Record

    BUHARI reaction is trial and error…………Professor Charles Soludo

    “We had used the Nigerian economy and Nigerians as guinea pigs in the
    futile experimentation with tried but failed policy—and the dead bodies are
    littered everywhere with a recession, escalating unemployment and factory
    closures, rising inflation and poverty and the consequent huge parallel market
    premia – that is one of the highest in the world. The parallel market exchange
    rate has now become a very important leading indicator in the economy.

    There is a saying that “confidence grows at the speed that a coconut
    tree grows but falls at the speed a coconut falls
    ”. Investor confidence is not
    like a tap you can turn on and off. Restoring policy credibility by swiftly correcting the
    persisting errors and demonstrating commitment to sound macro management rather
    than the “trial and error” mode will be the first important step forward.”

  • Anasieze Donatus

    With the kind of comments you read on this forum,it shows that they looting of the Nigerian commonwealth by Goodluck Jonathan and his Ijaws siblings in his Government was a collectives decision of all Izon Nations and that is why they see nothing bad about the revelations .What they looted in Nigeria within their 6 Years looting spree supersedes with was collectively looted in Nigeria since 1914 amalgamation

    • IZON Redeemer

      Maybe Zik also stole from ACB for his Ibo siblings in the south east who knows—————–Just maybe——I mean when the British caught Zik stealing from ACB–he may have told them he stole to appease the soul of his Ibo siblings———————–although the history books did not tell us that was what Zik told the judges who found him guilty—animals

    @anasiezedonatus:disqus

    The evidence here is decisive and convincing. There’s no doubt that moneylaundering occurred.

    What has to get at is the source $4million in the first place, because that’s where criminal fact lay.

    Goodluck Ebele Jonathan will be implicated by that question since no gun attack occurred in a bank.

    • IZON Redeemer

      Which can of yeye evidence are u talking about—here?———–That Dudafa has been doing business with the Malian or Chadian who has been changing money for him for ages—–even while in Bayelsa state—-? Is that the evidence–that u call overwhelming—even while Dudafa was working as a COMMISSIONER with Sylva now a member of the Apes in APC?—Jonathan have all the rights in the world to use his Security votes as he pleases——————–There is no law in Nigeria which says he cannot give Dudafa money from his security votes—–to change into dollars to enable him settle the many pressing issues that often confront him as president of Nigeria——————-The case does not make sense-one little bit–Yes it may do so to those from the old regions of Nigeria sha-ut not in the mind of sane Nigerians wanting Aisha Buhari to confess her sins against the Halliburton fraud case-

  • IDOWU

    This does not make any sense. What we want to know if the money is from federal govt account. The man according to his statement hss been doing forex business with Dudafa ever before Dudafa became Jonathan’s aide. The source of the money is what Nigerians want to hear and for what purposes. We don’t want to assume anything until the court and EFCC establish that the money is looted if not just mentioning that the bereau de change operator exchange dollar for naira for Dudafa does not make any sense, many people do transact such transactions.

      When Buhari was asked why he smuggled the said suit cases into Nigeria when the entire entry points in the country were closed he said the suitcases belonged to a very important Fulani Emir—————————————————-the Emir of Gwandu—-who took care of him when he was smuggled inot Nigerian from Mali

        I don’t understand!
        Were the suit cases taken out of the country or they were taken into the country?

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    GEJ regime really messed up Nigeria,s public treasuries as NNPC treasury was turned to an ATM and Dame Patience Ibifaka Jonathan,looted Nigerian public funds in dollars which were lodged into several commercial banks that were discovered recently by the EFCC which were confiscated by the EFCC.GEJ lacks transparency and require leadership qualities.

  • vagabonds in power

    The EFCC has as a matter of fact, outlived it usefullness to its

    orignal founder,OBJ.

    OBJ is nomore in power,and therefore EFCC must now be dismantled.

    The Chief,Olusegun Obasanjo,our erstwhile President, had in

    his time, used the EFCC to hound his political foes,real or imagined.

    But today,our rogue Fulani President,Muhammadu Buhari has

    reconstituted the EFCC as one of his Jhadist Institutions, like

    his Miyetti Cattlle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria, and its

    ramapaging Fulani Herdsmen, to intimidate and oppress us……………………….

    indigenous Nigerians.

    The EFCC is now used by the Caliphate of Sokoto in its grand

    plan to Islamise and make our fatherland its Usman Dan Fodio

    Estate.

    Our Former First Lady,Dame Patience Jonathan,is a daughter of Rivers State and therefore,one of our Oil Princesses.She got

    married to a Bayelsan Oil Princes, Prof. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan,a former Governor of his State,an erstwhile Vice President of our Republic, and also our EX-President.

    At this juncture,it appers as if the current usurpers of power in

    the polity,are carrying their purported fight against corruption

    too far.

    When has there ever been such a harrasment of our ex- First Families in this country, like in this case of President Jonathan’s?

    Her Majesty,Patience Jonathan is not only the oil Queen of

    Rivers and Bayelsa, but also of our entire Eastern Nigeria.

    She is an untouchable.Period.

    Buhari and his EFCC morons,must plese, leave our Oil Queen alone!!
