Former aide-de-camp(ADC) to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Col. Ojogbame Adegbe has failed to reveal more information relating to the N10 billion allegedly moved from the Office of the National Security Adviser for political purposes. A source close to the investigation told Sunday Vanguard that Adegbe, a serving colonel in the Nigerian Army, was not opening up on the money or any other issue put to him by EFCC operatives.
The source further said Adegbe was insisting that he did his job as a loyal and professional military officer to Nigeria and the Commander-in-Chief (C-i-C), and would therefore not dabble into monetary issues. The source said: “The truth is that the EFCC has not been able to extract anything tangible which they hoped to use as evidence in relation to the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of $2.1 arms cash from the Office of the NSA, who is also standing trial”.
Recall former NSA Dasuki, had before Adegbe was summoned, in a statement said : “I am aware in November (I cannot remember the exact date), my office requested the CBN to exchange N10billion from the account of the Office of National Security Adviser domiciled in CBN. The money was exchanged at $47m and some Euros which I cannot remember. The exact amount was delivered at my residence. The money was for delegates that attended the nomination convention for the PDP presidential nomination. The money was paid and sent to Hon. (Waripamowei) Dudafa (SSAP Household) and ADC(C-IC) for distribution on the instruction of the President.”
