Former NSA, Sambo Allegedly Connived With CBN to Steal $5m From NSA's Account – SSS Alleges
SAN FRANCISCO, July 20, (THEWILL) – A further revelation as to why the homes of former NSA, Sambo Dasuki was invaded by the State Security Service, SSS, is an allegation that a sum of $5m withdrawn from the National Security Adviser's account at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) disappeared.
The cash vanished when Dasuki was the NSA, thus prompting the probe by the SSS, which is perusing
alleged questionable withdrawals running into billions of naira.
THEWILL gathered that the money vanished when a driver to Dasuki’s aide vanished with $5 million that was withdrawn from the office's account with the CBN.
Other issues on which Dasuki is suspect, according to an SSS source are: the purchase of his Asokoro mansion shortly after his appointment as NSA, his attempt to stage a coup and frustrate the handover date, his manipulation of election date midway and collection of huge sums of money under the guise of fighting insurgency without doing so until the tail end of the Jonathan’s administration.
He is also fingered in the botched $15million cash-for-weapons deal with a South African firm. The seized cash has been returned to the Nigerian government by South African authorities.
