A new twist to the ongoing investigation of the $2.1bn arms contract scandal may soon unfold as associates of the embattled former National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki have threatened to make public a proof that those denying to have benefitted from the money actually collected the amounts ticked against their names.
They said it was shocking that some politicians would deny ever having anything to do with the ex- NSA and his office when there is a record to show that they received the money.
Addressing some newsmen yesterday, three of Dasuki’s friends and associates claimed that they were prepared to build up graphic cases against those denying receiving either material or cash gifts from the former NSA.
The associates, who pleaded for anonymity said that apart from a comprehensive subpoena of individuals and their proxies, who received financial and material gifts but have turned round to deny ever doing so, said they were considering releasing recorded video of all transactions.
“Some people are shamelessly telling indefensible lies. We have witnesses and recordings of these visits. A man received two retired army officers in his private sitting room, called his nephew to collect the bag and would thereafter say he saw nothing, heard nothing. This is very laughable.
“How did his nephew who has never worked in his life accumulate over N850 million in his bank account (0045586381) in a new generation bank?
“Let them cover what they think they could, and we would certainly spill the beans for Nigerians to see their hypocrisy.
“All of us would meet in court. But before then if they keep denying, we would release some clips on both YouTube and other forms of social media for the world to see their nakedness,” the one of the associates who led media interaction said.
Dasuki and some prominent Nigerians including Chairman of Daar Communications Plc, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, former governor of Sokoto state, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa are facing trial over their alleged involvement in the arms contracts funds bazaar.
