More Revelations On The Arrest of Dasuki, Dokpesi, Others

As we reported on Tuesday, the EFCC nabbed a former Governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Bafarawa and the former Chairman of DAAR Communications (AIT and Ray Power), Raymond Dokpesi, in connection with the ongoing $2.1billion arms procurement scandal.
EFCC insider said: "The allegation against Dokpesi is that he received N2.5bn. Bafarawa was brought in in the early hours of the day while Dokpesi was brought in by 12noon. 
"We have not got the former PDP Chairman, Haliru Bello, but definitely efforts are on to get him. It is expected because his name came up during the investigation."

The EFCC's Special Task Force had on Monday arrested a son of the former governor, Sagir Bafarawa, for allegedly receiving N4.6bn from the Office of the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), during the tenure of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Sagir was undergoing interrogation by some members of the EFCC's 27-man Task Force, which the commission Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, set up last month when his father was brought into the commission's headquarters in the early hours of Tuesday.

A top operative of the commission told PUNCH that the EFCC decided to pick Bafarawa because of the belief that the son might have acted as a front for him in the arms deals under investigation.

The source stated that the task force arrested Dokpesi on Tuesday in connection with about N2.5bn allegedly traced to him from the Office of the National Security Adviser.

He was arrested and taken to the Idiagbon House headquarters of the agency in Abuja by 12noon.

The anti-graft agency's men were still extracting statements from the suspects as at the time of posting.

Investigation further revealed that the commission was intensifying efforts to arrest a former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr. Haliru Mohammed, who was also a former Minister of Defence, for allegedly having a hand in the arms funds.

The commission had arrested the son of the ex-PDP chairman, Abba Mohammed, on Monday for alleged complicity in the arms deals.

It was stated that the son received N600m in the name of BAM Properties Limited.

As of the time of filing in this report, a former Minister of State for Finance, Ambassador Bashir Yuguda, and the ex-PDP chairman's son, who were arrested on Monday in connection with their roles in the arms procurement deals, were still in the EFCC detention.

Bank documents have shown that these men received the money without doing any job for government.
