FILE PHOTO: Former NSA Sambo Dasuki and others arraigned over misappropriation at the FCT High Court in Abuja

Court papers containing charges against a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, and some of  his former lieutenants, have provided further details of how Mr. Dasuki allegedly distributed billions of naira meant for arms purchase for the fight against the insurgent Boko Haram group, to politicians, his cronies and family members.

Mr. Dasuki was on Monday arraigned before an Abuja High Court on a 19-count charge of money laundering and breach of public trust.

Those charged alongside Mr. Dasuki were a former director of finance at the office of the NSA, Shuaibu Salisu, as well as an aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Waripamowei Dudafa.

A former general manager at the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Aminu BabaKusa, and two firms, Acacia Holdings Limited and Reliance Referral Hospital Abuja, were also charged.

The first charge accused Messrs. Dasuki, Salisu and Dudafa (said to be at large) of withdrawing N10 billion in foreign currency equivalent from the account of the NSA with the CBN on November 27, 2014.

The charge says Mr. Dasuki claimed to have distributed the money to PDP presidential primary election delegates – an act the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission said was punishable under section 315 of the penal code Act, Cap 532, Vol. 4 laws of the federation 2004.

Another count says Messrs. Dasuki and Salisu withdrew N2.120 billion from the NSA account with CBN, between January 22 and March 19 and paid same to the account of Daar Investment and Holding Company Limited controlled by Raymond Dokpesi, for the funding of the media activities for the 2015 presidential election campaign of the PDP.

Messrs. Dasuki and Salisu were also accused of criminal breach of trust by withdrawing N90 Million from the NSA’s account with Diamond Bank Plc and remitting the said amount into the account of “Brains and Hammers Limited for the purchase of 7-bedroom duplex house at No. 11 Mansur Bamalli Drive (D1064), Apo 1, Abuja in the name of Abubakar Atiku Dasuki, the son of Mr. Dasuki”.

Messrs. Dasuki and Salisu also on 28 January reportedly withdrew N170 million from another NSA account with Skye Bank Plc and paid the money into the account of Urban Abode Nigeria Limited for the purchase of a four-bedroom duplex at plot 2562/2643, Platinum Villa (PV) Asokoro Abuja in the name of AVM M. N. Umaru.

The Nigerian government is also accusing Messrs. Dasuki and Salisu of illegally transferring N1.5 billion of Nigerian money held at Zenith Bank between October 9, 2014 and April 17 2015, to Acacia Holdings limited “controlled by one Aminu Babakusa purporting same to be payment for organizing prayers”.

The duo were also said to have on April 17, 2015 transferred N750 Million from the NSA account with Zenith bank to the account of Reliance Reference Hospital also controlled by Mr. Babakusa for organizing prayers.

In a separate charge, Acacia Holdings and its owner, Mr. Babakusa, were accused of collecting N1.45 billion from the account of the NSA with Zenith Bank, into their accounts with UBA and Ecobank, between October 9, 2014 and April 17, 2015, from Messr. Dasuki and Salisu for organizing prayers, knowing that the money “directly represented proceeds of criminal conducts and knowing same to be stolen property”.

Mr. Babakusa and Reliance Hospital were also accused of collecting N750 million from Mr. Dasuki on April 17, 2015 “which sum belonged to the Federal Government of Nigeria and knowing the said sum to be stolen property but purporting same to be payment for organizing prayers and you thereby committed an offence punishable under section 317 of the penal code Act, Cap 532, Vol. 4 laws of the federation 2004”.

The government also said that on April 9, 2015, Messrs. Dasuki and Salisu transferred N380 million in the account of the NSA with CBN to the account of Belsha Nigeria Limited for “consultancy services”.

Messrs. Dasuki and Salisu were also accused of transferring, on 12th August 2014 and 23rd March, 2015, from the NSA account with CBN, the sum of N670 Million to the account of General hydrocarbons Limited with Guarantee Trust Bank, GTB, controlled by Nduka Obaigbena as payment for “energy consulting”.

Mr. Obaigbena is the publisher of ThisDay newspaper.

The two former government officials are also accused of transferring N260 million from the NSA account with Skye Bank to the account of a former chairman of the Board of Trustee of the PDP, Tony Anenih, with First Bank of Nigeria Plc.

Messrs. Dasuki and Salisu are also accused of criminal breach of trust when they allegedly transferred N345 million from the CBN account of the NSA to the account of Starbrid Limited with Stanbic IBTC Bank and GTB controlled by Emmanuel Lawani on behalf of Iyorchia Ayu, for the construction of a shopping mall at Jabi, Abuja, “purporting same to be payment for satellite charges and security equipment” thereby committing an offence punishable under section 315 of the penal code Act, Cap 532, Vol. 4 laws of the federation 2004.

In all, the EFCC said it was accusing Messrs. Dasuki and Salisu of conspiring to do an illegal act through criminal breach of trust by public officers between October 2014 and April 2015 by distributing N13.570 billion belonging to the Federal Government to politicians and cronies.

The EFCC said the offense committed by the duo is punishable under section 97 of the Penal Code Act, Cap 532, Vol, 4 LFN 2004.

The anti-graft agency also said by “dishonestly receiving stolen property” belonging to the Nigerian government, totalling N2.2 billion, Acacia Holdings Limited, Reliance Reference Hospital and Aminu Babakusa have committed an offence punishable under section 97 of the Penal Code Act, Cap 532, Vol, 4 LFN 2004.

    NSA doing father Xmas with our money, yet you hear some people say PMB is is being vindictive on Dasuki. People died while this unrepentant thief and his cronies were living large on our security money.,

      Im waiting for their excuses now !. Its a witch hunt wont fly !. If it is, these witches should be lines up and shot dead !

      • Mafar_Ka

        The new one is that PMB has also gotten a share of the money so he should resign and face trial too. Daft as they always are.

        • Julius

          Yea and he is witch hunting Dasuki because he is an Ijaw man that produce the oil feeding all the Africans. The oil dey come from him parlor . Hope you know that. lolz. Nonsense

          • Mike Ojo

            Col. Sambo Dasuki is not an Ijaw man, abeg. He’s fromthe North. A southerner won’t descend so low as to squander funds meant for lifethreatening issue on trivial politicking issues.
            That’s why his kinsmen here elude him to tackle GEJ.

          • Julius

            ‘A southerner won’t descend so low as to squander funds meant for lifethreatening’. Im not so sure about that. Giving the chance, they are all the same as far as Im concerned !

          • Mike Ojo

            Na! U r wrong on that. This case is similar to genocide & a southerner will not divert funds @ the expense of soldiers fighting for the peace of his country. He thinks of the side effects & knows that when peace is threatened & there is a full blown war, he becomes a victim of his action. He is sensible & sensitive too. It’s not about chance. He won’t take that chance.

      “The most heartless and reprehensible thing that our government could have done is to cover-up the fact that 105 of our soldiers were killed by Boko Haram a few days ago. To do such a thing is simply evil. The government has not only dishonored them by not acknowledging their sacrifice but they have also buried them in the wilderness like rabid dogs. This is wickedness of the highest order and President Buhari, his Chief of Army Staff and his Minister of Defense should bury their heads in shame”. —- Fani Olukayode

Stop living in yesterday man, it is already tomorrow in Australia. Wake up asap! Nigeria is going…going…GONE. Under Mohammed Buhari Nigeria will not survive. It is only six months and everyone is tired. The economy is comatose. Business is dead. Security is non – existent. So bad that his newly US trained spokespersons have no more lies and vocabulary from which to concoct lies. 105 Soldiers killed by Boko Haram with suspected Chemical weapons and the Govt and army covers up? This is horrendous. Evil. Crude!……and you come here to make irrelevant comments evasive of the critical issues? Is Buhari not vindictive? He is too old to change. After 6 monhs, he still blames past Govts for everything. Buhari is a disaster. ……………………….and be warned, NEVER you refer to the ND money as ‘our’ money. It amounts to treason.

      Did Goodluck give or receive money here? Did Dasuki indict him here? Has the prosecuting EFCC indicted him? Why do u open u buccal orifice to spill out sensitive issues in such insensitive manner. U r not being thorough & logical? The Funds were approved for arms by GEJ after Dasuki tabled a letter of request for arms purchase to fight insurgency & the approval pass through the CBN & Senate. It wasn’t approved to be distributed as gifts – Dasuki & the EFCC confirmed that. So the approval was legal & for the good of the Soldiers & Nigerians in general. U should be discussing about or directing your insults to people who illegally partook in the fund.

          Its so fortunate that such is the nature of the country we find ourselves in. At least, we r witnessing this saga under this govt. It will be a very big feat to eradicate corruption in this country. Whoever achieves this must be born in another world.

  • Sobe.

    I am visualing a neglience law suit by the families of those soldiers that died or injured, because, the army had accepted of knowling sending them to harms way without necessary gears needed for war. This should be a civil case and they will seek remunarations for pain suffered because of the lost of loved ones. This is where Nigerian lawyers can at least be of help to the poor injured soldiers and their families.

    DasukiGate: Buhari Collected $300,000 Compensation From Dasuki.

    The Investigation on the $2.1billion arms purchase funds given to the former National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki rtd have revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari was among those that benefited for the Security spending.

    According to Dasuki’s office, alleged that General Muhammadu Buhari collected $300,000 initial payment as compensation over Boko Haram’s attack on him. His Bullet proof car that worth Millions was also replaced with new ones by Dasuki.

    President Buhari benefited from the alleged diversion of Arms budget by Dasuki with Newspapers owners, whose Business was disrupted by both Boko Haram attacks and the Military seizing their Newspapers or disrupting their distribution channels.

    President Buhari was also alleged to have received 5 bullet proof Jeeps from Sambo Dasuki valued over N500million without the approval of the Presidency. Why is Premium Times hiding this story-? Because thief Buhari is involved abi

    Clearly, under Buhari life has become a tale of SORROWS, TEARS & BLOOD for Nigerians. It is blood everywhere and deaths everyday. If Boko haram Islamist terrorists are not killing then it will be the Nigerian Army who are killing or the EFCC who are arresting people or placing people on house arrest. This is clearly an Animal Kingdom.

    3. You say you are fighting Boko Haram but the man you appointed as your National Security Adviser was retired from the army a few years ago for ordering the release of Boko Haram terrorists under suspicious circumstances.

    4. You say you are fighting Boko Haram but the first thing you did when u came to power was to remove military checkpoints.This guaranteed Boko Haram free movement and access to the entire country.

    5. You say you are fighting Boko Haram yet last year you told the world that an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the north.
    6. You say you are fighting terror yet since you came to power Boko Haram has grown in strength, has regained lost territory and has been declared the ”worlds number one most deadly terror group” by the Global Terror Index.

    7. You say you are fighting terror yet since you came to power Nigeria, according to the Global Terror Index, has been declared as not just having ”the first most deadly terror group in the world” which is Boko Haram but also of having ”the fourth most deadly terror group in the world” which is a group that the Index describe as the ”Fulani militants” and that we call the Fulani herdsmen.

    8. You say you are fighting Boko Haram yet since you came to power Nigeria has been declared the world’s ”third most terrorised country” by the Global Terror Index after Iraq and Afghanistan which were declared first and second respectively whilst Syria and Pakistan were declared fourth and fifth.

    9. You say you are a ”born again democrat” yet you voted against the protection of human rights at the United Nations alongside Iran, Zimbabwe and North Korea.

          So before GEJ became the President of Nigeria, there was no single ammunition with the military. If care was not taken there might not have been military in this nation before GEJ came in as the President; meaning GEJ created the army, air force and the navy, and probably the police.If you have nothing top contribute, go and look for sureties for Dasuki, Dokpesi and others that Dasuki became their ATM courtesy of GEJ.

    1. You say you love Nigeria yet a bomb goes off in Kano killing over 21 people and instead of coming back home to mourn with your people you continue junketing around the world.
    2. You say you know how to run Nigeria but according to Paul Wallace and Michael Cohen of the United States magazine known as Bloomberg Business your ”bounce has become bust”, your ”policies irk investors”, you have ”destroyed Nigeria’s economy” and you ”do not have the capacity to move the country forward”.
    3. You say that you know how to manage the economy yet stocks and shares have crashed, small businesses are folding up, our foreign currency has dried up, industries are collapsing, agricultural output has decreased, our foreign reserves have been spent and the value of the naira has depreciated since you came to power and it continues to fall.
    4. You say you know what you are doing and how to manage Nigeria’s affairs yet the U.S,-based Washington Times newspaper says that you lied to America about your so-called good intentions for Nigeria and that you have ”duped the United States of America” with your false promises and empty words.

    5. You say that you are fighting poverty yet according to the Business Day Newspaper Nigerians are ”getting poorer for the first time since 1999”.

    6. You say that you will restore our countries fortunes yet the fuel queues are back and the prices of food, transport and basic commodities are soaring by the day.
    7. You say that you are a man of your word and after you were declared winner of the election you promised not to malign, persecute, witchunt, demonize, disrespect or go after President Goodluck Jonathan and members of his administration unless you had concrete evidence of wrongdoing yet when you came to power you did precisely that.
    8. You say you are fair-minded, true to your friends, loyal to your supporters and always reasonable yet you did not concede even one ministerial slot or approve one ministerial nominee of the two men that helped you more than any others to win the presidential election, namely President Olusegun Obasanjo and Governor Bola Tinubu.
    9. You say that you want the country to change, that you believe in fairness and equity, that you are a progressive, that you believe in a generational powershift and that you want the country to move forward yet you are trying to destroy Governor Bukola Saraki simply because he won an election and became Senate President.
    10. You say that you are fighting corruption yet no-one has been made to face the music or brought to book over the 25 billion naira REMITA and Systemspecs scandal and neither has the matter been clarified or resolved even though it has been established that the whole deal was struck under your watch.
    11. You say you love Nigeria and all Nigerians yet your Fulani kinsmen, under the guise of herding cattle, are slaughtering thousands of innocent people all over the south and Middle Belt, yet you remain their Grand Patron and you refuse to utter to a word of condemnation for their actions.
    12. You say you respect Nigerians yet every time you travel out of the country you spend your time telling foreigners and the foreign media how useless, rotten and corrupt your people are and how you are the only saint in Nigeria.

    In view of all this I am constrained to ask whether President Muhammadu Buhari has a conscience or is it that he has just lost touch with reality? Everything that I said about him during the Presidential campaign has been confirmed and in just six months he has betrayed the trust and squandered the goodwill that the Nigerian people bestowed upon him in the March presidential elections. I have to say that I am not surprised by this because his ”change” mantra was just an illusion. —– High Chief Fani Olukayode

You say you know how to run Nigeria but according to Paul Wallace and Michael Cohen of the United States magazine known as Bloomberg Business your ”bounce has become bust”, your ”policies irk investors”, you have ”destroyed Nigeria’s economy” and you ”do not have the capacity to move the country forward”.

    3. You say that you know how to manage the economy yet stocks and shares have crashed, small businesses are folding up, our foreign currency has dried up, industries are collapsing, agricultural output has decreased, our foreign reserves have been spent and the value of the naira has depreciated since you came to power and it continues to fall.

    4. You say you know what you are doing and how to manage Nigeria’s affairs yet the U.S,-based Washington Times newspaper says that you lied to America about your so-called good intentions for Nigeria and that you have ”duped the United States of America” with your false promises and empty words.

    5. You say that you are fighting poverty yet according to the Business Day Newspaper Nigerians are ”getting poorer for the first time since 1999”.

    6. You say that you will restore our countries fortunes yet the fuel queues are back and the prices of food, transport and basic commodities are soaring by the day.

    7. You say that you are a man of your word and after you were declared winner of the election you promised not to malign, persecute, witchunt, demonize, disrespect or go after President Goodluck Jonathan and members of his administration unless you had concrete evidence of wrongdoing yet when you came to power you did precisely that.

    8. You say you are fair-minded, true to your friends, loyal to your supporters and always reasonable yet you did not concede even one ministerial slot or approve one ministerial nominee of the two men that helped you more than any others to win the presidential election, namely President Olusegun Obasanjo and Governor Bola Tinubu.

    In view of all this I am constrained to ask whether President Muhammadu Buhari has a conscience or is it that he has just lost touch with reality? Everything that I said about him during the Presidential campaign has been confirmed and in just six months he has betrayed the trust and squandered the goodwill that the Nigerian people bestowed upon him in the March presidential elections. I have to say that I am not surprised by this because his ”change” mantra was just an illusion. —– High Chief Fani Olukayode

      What has any of this rabid rant got to do with the theft of N13.6 billion Dasuki claimed for arms procurement?

      • Mike Ojo

        It sure has a lot. Subtract those sum from the diverted N13b & see the difference afterall Dasuki said the cash & car buhari received were part of the ill fund. Let’s not hide the truth lest we go down in lies.

    FANI KAYODE TO BUHARI:

    1. You say that you want the country to change, that you believe in fairness and equity, that you are a progressive, that you believe in a generational powershift and that you want the country to move forward yet you are trying to destroy Governor Bukola Saraki simply because he won an election and became Senate President.

    2. You say that you are fighting corruption yet no-one has been made to face the music or brought to book over the 25 billion naira REMITA and Systemspecs scandal and neither has the matter been clarified or resolved even though it has been established that the whole deal was struck under your watch.

    3. You say you love Nigeria and all Nigerians yet your Fulani kinsmen, under the guise of herding cattle, are slaughtering thousands of innocent people all over the south and Middle Belt, yet you remain their Grand Patron and you refuse to utter to a word of condemnation for their actions.

    4. You say you respect Nigerians yet every time you travel out of the country you spend your time telling foreigners and the foreign media how useless, rotten and corrupt your people are and how you are the only saint in Nigeria.

    In view of all this I am constrained to ask whether President Muhammadu Buhari has a conscience or is it that he has just lost touch with reality?

How can someone be lying through his teeth and the same time claim that God is using him sanitise the system.

        He feigned ignorance of depletion of Rivers fund and other APC states while campaign was going on and even went ahead to anoint Amaechi’s as minister.

      Thank you Sir cos u just mentioned the crux of the matter. We are engage in bloody insurgent with bh yet monies meant to address this was spent on election settlement. How some Nigerians open their mouths and try to defend such monumental crime is beyond my comprehension. We must truly hate ourselves in this country. I wonder if they will express such sentiments if their brothers, fathers, sisters, mothers were killed in this violence that the previous government undermined by embarking of this bazaar. Sad.

    • Mike Ojo

      Wrong! Dasuki & (not Jonathan) & those that benefited from the arms fund owe those that died in the hands of Bokoharam & should be held culpable. The CBN gave Dasuki the money (not Jonathan) & he squandered it (not on Jonathan). Jonathan only approved (& he can’t do that without the Senate) his letter to purchase arms to fight Bokoharam through his finance minister.

        Below are his explanation on the reasons why he granted Chief Raymond Dokpesi bail.

        1. He granted Chief Dokpesi Bail but with conditions.
        Two sureties in the sum of N200m each.
        One must be a serving or retired civil servant (director level).

        2. He put the EFCC on notice that he was already looking at some errors in their case and warned them in advance.
        For instance he wondered how they intend to prove that Dokpesi laundered govt money when he was charged alone…since he is not a govt employee.
        He also wondered how they could have asked him to deny Dokpesi bail because “the issue was one of national security which related to the diversion of money meant for arms, which led to the deaths of soldiers” when in the 6 count charge NOTHING of the such was mentioned.

        3. He asked the lawyers to file an application for the media houses who have been leaking confidential documents about the case and promised to make an example out of a few to deter others.

        4. He was unequivocal when he mandated that on no grounds should the EFCC re-arrest Dokpesi on any other matter while on bail. That he knows their (EFCC) rascality and he is putting them on notice that if they need Dokpesi, they should invite him by writing through his lawyers and give 48hrs notice. Dokpesi can only be questioned between the hours of 10am and 6pm and that should not be abused. If they want to question him outside these hours they should write to the court specially.

        Finally, he was crystal clear about how keen the courts are to fight corruption, but stressed that it would not make any sense to attempt to do so through corrupt processes. –
