REVEALED: N6.7bn Transferred To NSA & SSS 2 Days After Jonathan Was Defeated
The EFCC has discovered the transfer of N6.7bn from the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation to the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) and two other agencies.
The payments were said to have been authorised by a letter dated March 30, 2015, two days after the 2015 presidential election.
The document from the Office of the SGF, Special Services Office also lists the Director-General of the DSS, Ekpeyong Ita and MEA Research Library, as other beneficiaries of the N6.7bn.
Consequently, the EFCC is investigating how the transfer was made and reasons behind the payment of the huge amount to the government agencies.
According to Punch, the SGF office has revealed that the N6.7bn which was disbursed were for security.
The letter authorising the payments was addressed to the Branch Controller, CBN, Abuja Branch.
It read: “Please, credit the account(s) of the under-listed beneficiaries and debit our account number above with the sum of N6,076,834,131.00 (Six billion, seventy six million, eight hundred and thirty four thousand, one hundred and thirty-one naira only).”
EFCC is expected to invite some former public officers, who were involved in the transfer.
The EFCC source was quoted to have said: “We are going to invite those involved for clarifications. I am talking about those who have not been indicted. The fact that the payments were made after the presidential poll made them curious.”
