EFCC Freezes Account Of Goodluck Jonathan’s Ally
The Punch has learnt that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has found N900m on the accounts of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan assistant Waripamowei Dudafa.
According to the source, that the money was found in one of Dudafa’s accounts, which was instantly frozen.
“Dudafa told us that he had no money; so, we began to investigate his accounts. We then found N900m that was hidden in one of his accounts through the connivance of his account officer,” the source in the EFCC said.
“Dudafa initially denied owning the account but when he was confronted with evidence, he had no choice but to admit. Some people, who had paid money into the account based on Dudafa’s instructions, even came forward to say that the account indeed belonged to Dudafa. The N900m will be used as evidence against him in court.”
Dudafa was a close assistant and a kinsman of former president. He was arrested on April 18 at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
Jonathan’s former aide was blamed for giving N10bn to delegates at the presidential primary of the Peoples Democratic Party in December 2014.
Former national security adviser, Sambo Dasuki, who is currently in the custody of the EFCC over arms purchase scandal, had said the N10bn was given to Ojogbane and Dudafa.
At least seven officials of the former government were arrested under President Buhari.
