The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has allegedly recovered N900m from Mr. Waripamowei Dudafa, a former Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
The money was found in one of Dudafa’s accounts, which was immediately frozen, the Punch reports.
An anti-graft source hinted that, “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.
“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.”
Recall that Dudafa, who was a close aide to, and a kinsman of Jonathan, was arrested on April 18 at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
