Exclusive: Efcc Transfers Colonel Adegbe, Former Adc To Ex-president Jonathan To Military – Source
BEVERLY HILLS, February 26, (THEWILL) – The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has transferred Colonel Ojogbane Adegbe, a former Aide-de-Camp (ADC) to erstwhile President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, to the military after detaining and interrogating him for about two weeks over the whereabouts of the over $47 million he received from embattled former NSA, retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki.
A usually credible source familiar with the development told THEWILL Friday that Adegbe, who filed a N100m wrongful detention suit against the EFCC Wednesday, was released to the Nigerian Army authorities on Friday morning.
Investigators say the cash Adegbe collected from Dasuki, was diverted from a Crude Oil Signature Bonus Account domiciled at the Central Bank of Nigeria.
THEWILL gathered that the senior officer told investigators that he handed the funds over to another former key aide of the ex-President, Waripamowei Dudafa, who served as a special adviser on domestic affairs to the former leader. Dudafa has since absconded and is believed to be hiding in the Middle East or the Caribbean Islands.
EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwajaren could not immediately confirm Adegbe's transfer to the army. He said he would crosscheck and revert to us, but hadn't done so as at the time of publishing.
Army's spokesman, Colonel S.K. Usman could also not confirm the development. “I have no idea… I am in Maiduguri,” he said in an SMS.
