EFCC docks Dasuki, Yuguda, Bafarawa others, on fresh corruption charges

R-L: Sambo Dasuki, Aminu Babakusa, Shuaibu Salisu

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday arraigned a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki; a former Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda; a former Sokoto State Governor, Attahiru Bafarawa; Mr. Bafarawa’s son, Sagir; and two others on fresh charges bordering on money laundering and criminal breach of trust.

The EFFC has accused the six of diversions, misappropriation and breach of public trust in respect of N19.4billion.

They were arraigned on 22-count charge before Justice Peter Affem of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High court.

When the charges were read to them, all the accused persons denied the charges one after the other.

Counsel to the Nigerian government, Rotimi Jacobs, SAN, requested an adjournment of the trial till next year to enable him assemble his witnesses.

However, Counsel to Mr. Dasuki, Ahmed Raji, SAN, raised the issue of bail for the accused persons adding that motions for their bail had been filed and served on the prosecution.

The prosecution lawyer, Mr. Jacobs confirmed that he was served the applications for bail of all the accused persons.

Justice Affem adjourned hearing in the bail application until Wednesday, December 16, with the consent of all the lawyers in the trial.

He also ordered the accused persons kept in the custody of the EFCC until their bail is decided on Thursday.

Meanwhile in another FCT High Court, Justice Sani Yusuf adjourned bail ruling till Friday.

Mr. Dasuki, who was arraigned before Justice Yusuf, alongside a former director of finance at the office of the NSA, Shuaibu Salisu, and a former Group General Manager of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Aminu Kura, and two firms, Acacia Holdings Limited and Reliance Reference Hospital, had on Monday filed for bail after pleading not guilty to the 19-count charge bordering on money laundering and criminal breach of trust.

After over two hours of arguments and counter-arguments from counsel to both parties, Mr. Yusuf adjourned bail ruling to Friday. Mr. Dasuki will remain in EFCC custody.

      Sani Abacha stole 2.2 billion dollars, according to the New York Times. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan stole thrice
      that figure; and then, restole all of the Abacha loot so far recovered. The questions now arising are as follows:

      Given that Goodluck Jonathan restole the Abacha loot and shared a good portion of it to aides,
      appointees and cronies – by conspiracy – how much did Reuben Abati pocket from the Abacha loot?

      How much did Doyin Okupe get from the Abacha loot?

      How much did Senator Ben Obi get from Abacha loot as Jonathan’s inter-party political adviser?

      How much did Ahmed Gulak get from the Abacha loot as Jonathan’s political adviser?

      How much did Pius Anyim, as Secretary to the government, get from the Abacha loot?

      How much did Genereal Ihejirika (Army Chief) get for himself from the Abacha loot?

      How much did Jonathan’s Ministers each get from Abacha loot by the sharing formula?

      How much did each AFENIFERE Leader in the South-West get from the Abacha’s Loot?

    POSTING THESE TYPES OF NEWS OFTEN LEAKED TO PREMIUM TIMES–BY EFCC IS WHAT JUDGES ARE NOW FROWNING AT—–BUT WILL THEY THE BUHARIMICE LISTEN TO THE WORDS OF WISDOM——————————————–?—————————-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. -Buhari should explain to the Nation how he collected 2.4b from Dasuki and the 5 bullet proof cars-following the fake –stage managed boko haram led assassination attempt on his life–

      to the principal offenders. Is that how to fight corruption? My friend, wake up. Nigeria is not
      going anywhere with this sort of low Intelligence Quotient (IQ). Has Buhari ever explained
      how Raji Fashola and Rotimi Amaechi qualified as Ministers under an anti-corruption
      government he’s fooling himself that he’s running? Has Buhari ever explained to us
      why SANUSI LAMIDO SANUSI – as the Central Bank Governor at the period in issue –
      has not been arrested for interrogation till today on this DASUKI/JONATHAN THEFT?
      Look, my friend, stop looking for the living amongst the dead. Buhari is not it O!

  • Dollar$man

    All these useless charges being filed daily. The EFCC are just a bunch of incompetent fools. Why not consolidate the charges to a few major charges. It is only in Nigeria that you hear of people being charged with 100 counts and all get thrown out. I also wonder how come Premium times and Sahara always get the efcc documents before they are filed in court. Yeye dey smell. All of this will amount to nothing in the end. They should take their time and do their homework before all this media trial.

      Useless man. All governors and presidents have all used their security votes as they like. Even in America, the president has money they can spend for clandestine operations. If you are going to start witch hunting anyone for spending their security votes, you better go and arrest all the current and past governors and presidents. We are not against corruption but selective justice will always be tainted.

        In the US, the president does not use security for people to steal. That will amount to abuse of power. The opponent would have leaked it out during election. There is no way you can be moving that large some of money from federal reserve into personal account without FBI and IRS at their tailgates.

          The N155billion Malabu Scam: EFCC quizzes Jonathan’s associate who helped distribute ‘slush fund’November 30, 2015

          Despite widespread corruption, Jonathan insists his govt is winning war against graftJanuary 9, 2015

          A British Judge on Tuesday refused to release $85 million (N17 billion) to Malabu, a fraudulent company controlled by Nigeria’s former petroleum minister, Dan Etete.

          In refusing to release the money to Malabu, Justice Edis of the Southwark Crown Court declared that he was not sure the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan acted in Nigeria’s interest when it approved the transfer of the money to Malabu.

          “I cannot simply assume that the FGN which was in power in 2011 and subsequently until 2015 rigorously defended the public interest of the people of Nigeria in all respects,” the judge ruled.

          PREMIUM TIMES had reported how the Jonathan administration controversially approved the transfer of $1.092 billion from Nigeria’s JP Morgan account in London to Nigerian accounts controlled by Malabu.

          The money was paid by global oil giants, Shell and ENi, for Africa’s richest oil bloc, OPL 245.

          The former Attorney General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke, and the former Minister of State for Finance, Yerima Ngama, signed the documents approving the transfer to Malabu.

          The fraudulent deal, shaded in various layers of corruption, has been condemned by Nigerians and international transparency advocates and is being investigated by authorities in four different countries.

          THE SEIZED $85 MILLION

          The $85 million was seized at the request of Italian prosecutors who are also investigating the deal. The money was the last part of the OPL 245 largesse not yet distributed.

          Sensing that the Muhammadu Buhari administration was yet to find its feet on international legal matters, Mr. Etete approached the British court and asked that the money be returned to him.

          At a two-day hearing that started on November 23, Mr. Etete’s lawyers argued that there was no fraud in the deal and asked that the money be released to him.

          While Mr. Etete argued that the money be released to him, the Italian prosecutor argued that “their investigation could lead to a potential forfeiture of the money down the road.” a source who has followed the case and was present at the proceedings told PREMIUM TIMES.

          Malabu’s lawyers told the court that freezing the money was an assault on Nigeria and questioned how the court could imagine that Messrs. Adoke and Ngama would be a party to a corrupt deal.

          THE RULING

          While giving his ruling on Tuesday, Justice Edis said while he could not say for certain if the deal was fraudulent pending conclusions of investigations, it would be inappropriate to release the money to Malabu.

          “I am not making any findings of fact about misconduct by anyone. I am simply assessing the evidence before me to determine whether a restraint order should be discharged which was granted by way of MLA (Mutual Legal Assistance between the UK and Italy) to support an investigation by the Italian authorities,” the judge said.

          The judge also made reference to evidence provided by the Italian authorities that ex-President Jonathan was directly involved in the fraudulent deal.

          “The suggestion from the wiretaps is that “Fortunato” was implicated and I am told that this was a reference in code (not subtle) to the former President of Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan,” the judge said.

          “Aliyu (Abubakar) is said to be associated with him and Aliyu received, in a way which was not transparent, $523m of the money paid for the OPL 245 licence in August 2011.”

          PREMIUM TIMES had reported how fictitious companies owned by Abubakar Aliyu, a man referred to as ‘Mr. Corruption’ by anti-graft officials, received over half ($532 million) of the total $1.092 billion.

          Mr. Aliyu, a close ally of Mr. Jonathan was recently quizzed by EFCC operatives for the first time despite being a central character in the deal whose investigation was virtually stalled during the Jonathan presidency.

          ACTIVISTS REACT

          Reacting to the ruling, Simon Taylor of Global Witness stated that “Given the gathering pace of the EFCC investigation in Nigeria under new leadership and a call by the Nigerian House of Representatives to cancel the deal in 2014, investors in Shell and Eni should demand to know why they were exposed to such risk.”

          The UK based Global Witness has been at the forefront of the demand for transparency in the deal and other similar deals across the world.

          Also reacting to the judgement, Dotun Oloko, an anti-corruption campaigner in Nigeria said, “In light of these allegations in a UK court, the role of the senior Nigerian officials involved in this deal, including Goodluck Jonathan, must now be fully investigated.”

          With the ruling, Nigerian now has the opportunity to not only claim the money but also another $110.5 million of the funds held in a Swiss bank while investigations continue.

          Below is a statement by Global Witness after the court ruling:

          Court refuses to unfreeze funds from “smash and grab” raid on Nigerian oil block

          Prosecutors allege that “fronts for President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria” received US$523m in proceeds of “smash and grab” OPL 245 deal

          Southwark Crown Court today rejected an attempt by a company owned by the former Nigerian oil minister Dan Etete to unfreeze US$85m in proceeds of the corrupt deal for the Nigerian offshore oil block, Oil Prospecting Licence 245 (OPL 245), which was sold to Shell and Eni for $1.1bn in 2011.

          The funds were restrained at the request of Italian authorities, who are investigating the sale of the block by Malabu Oil & Gas, a company secretly owned by Mr Etete, to the international oil companies.

          The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) under Goodluck Jonthan acted as a middleman in the deal, and the court received evidence based on wiretaps that prosecutors allege show that the then President, Goodluck Jonathan, was directly involved. The deal deprived the Nigerian people of a sum equivalent to 80% of the country’s 2015 health budget.

          “In light of these allegations in a UK court the role of the senior Nigerian officials involved in this deal including Goodluck Jonathan must now be fully investigated,” said Dotun Oloko, a Nigerian anti-corruption campaigner.

          Evidence from US authorities presented to the court and included in the judgement “shows payments following circuitous routes which total $523m and which arrived at Abubakar Aliyu, aka ‘Mr Corruption’” […] “Aliyu’s companies are allegedly fronts for President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria”. The Crown Prosecution Service, acting at the behest of the Public Prosecutor for Milan (PPM), described OPL 245 as a case of “grand corruption”.

          The OPL 245 deal is currently under investigation by the Public Prosecutor of Milan, the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA), and the Nigerian Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The EFCC have reportedly recently interviewed Abubakar Aliyu in connection with the case, and earlier this year interviewed Dan Etete.

          Justice Edis of Southwark Crown Court turned down Malabu’s application to discharge the freezing order rejecting Malabu’s arguments that the Crown had failed to follow proper procedures in securing the freezing. Justice Edis concluded in his judgement:

          It is extremely important that what I am about to say is not misunderstood. I am not making any findings of fact about misconduct by anyone. I am simply assessing the evidence before me to determine whether a restraint order should be discharged which was granted by way of MLA to support an investigation by the Italian authorities. That investigation is not complete (and appears to be still at quite an early stage). What misconduct it may ultimately prove, if any, will be a matter for the PPM and the Italian court if proceedings are brought. However, precisely because I cannot reach firm factual conclusions, I cannot simply assume that the FGN which was in power in 2011 and subsequently until 2015 rigorously defended the public interest of the people of Nigeria in all respects. Mr. Fisher QC who appeared for the CPS used the phrase “grand corruption” to describe the form of corruption in which the state itself is culpable. The suggestion from the wiretaps is that “Fortunato” was implicated and I am told that this was a reference in code (not subtle) to the former President of Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan. Aliyu is said to be associated with him and Aliyu received, in a way which was not transparent, $523m of the money paid for the OPL 245 licence in August 2011.

          “Given the gathering pace of the EFCC investigation in Nigeria under new leadership and a call by the Nigerian House of Representatives to cancel the deal in 2014, investors in Shell and Eni should demand to know why they were exposed to such risk,“ said Simon Taylor, a Director of Global Witness.

          Suspects named in the Italian case include Eni and its current and former CEOs Claudio Descalzi and Paolo Scaroni, as well the company’s Chief Development, Operations & Technology Officer Roberto Casula and former executive Vicenzo Armanna. Other suspects in the Italian case include Dan Etete and middlemen Emeka Obi, Gianluca Di Nardo and Luigi Bisignani. Shell and Eni have denied any wrongdoing.

          “It is clear from evidence in the public domain that high level executives in Shell personally took part in negotiating this deal. Citizens in the UK, US, Netherlands and Nigeria should demand that Shell and its executives are investigated in their respective countries,” said Nicholas Hildyard of The Corner House.

          Shell and Eni have invested at least $1.8bn in purchasing and developing the block, which they own 50-50. It reportedly holds probable reserves of 9.23 billion barrels of oil, which if proven, would represent the equivalent of a third of Shell’s proven reserves, and two thirds of Eni’s.

          Antonio Tricarico of Re:Common said: “$85 million paid by Eni and Shell for the benefit of Dan Etete’s company Malabu remains frozen in London. The time has come that Eni and Shell come clean about what they knew about this deal and who else this money was intended for.”

          For more information about the case read the briefing by Global Witness on OPL245, Shell and Eni’s Misadventures in Nigeria.

    The attorney-general Malami S.A.N was cautioned on this page a few days ago by an overseas lawyer,
    who wrote in to say that the attorney-general was on the wrong road. The attorney general was adamant.
    Now, as you wrote below, the trial Judge has once again alerted that the attorney-general may just have
    brought incompetent charges to court. So far, the attorney general Malami S.A.N who supervises and
    approves EFCC litigation, has remained adamant. I will not be surprised if at the end the Buhari regime
    is disgraced on points of law. Foreign governments have not been amused by the mis-performance of
    the Buhari cabinet, especially on the main issue of anti-corruption which has not been done aptly or
    done with demonstrable sense or knowledge, despite Buhari having a bogus Advisory Committee.

      evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornication, thefts, false witness, and,

      blasphemies. The love of money is the root of all evil; which, while some

      coveted after, they erred from faith, and pierced themselves with sorrows.

      If there is an arrest warrant on you, you’ve got to comply and follow the arresting officers. He should be slammed with resisting arrest too. You guys are just too funny with your comments, you mean suspects should decide when to be arrested or not? He is even lucky he’s not pinned to the floor and handcuffed, that is exactly what they would have done to him even in developed countries.

    The Yorubas have doomed Nigeria by electing their Islamist master. Why did Buhari join the new Arab union? A joint operations centre is to be established in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, state media reported. Countries from Asia, Africa and the Arab world are involved in the alliance but Saudi Arabia’s main regional rival Iran is not. It comes amid international pressure for Gulf Arab states to do more in the fight against so-called Islamic State.

    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…..

    Dasuki is what happens when someone entrusted with the security of a people turns out to be a thief. The faces of some of the descendants of demons the Bible said once roamed the earth. The faces of those who turned Boko haram into a cash cow and formed an enterprise out of the mayhem which took the lives of millions of Nigerians. The faces of those sponsored Boko Haram and ensured the mayhem continued to find justification for security votes. They are now in custody and Boko Haram is dying because the funding is not coming to them anymore. Money for prayers never went anywhere, they were money used to keep boko haram going while Dasuki and co dubbed it for prayers.

    Did we not see Buhari do all these before (1983-1985)?

    Buhari is a man who spends all his energies on negatives ….. let Buhari tell Nigerians all about his forged none existent WASC?
