Dasukigate: Buhari’s associate returns N100m to EFCC

Former Military Administrator of Kaduna State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Brig-Gen. Lawal Jafaru Isa (rtd) has refunded N100 million of the N170 million he allegedly collected from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

Isa, a long term associate of President Muhammadu Buhari, was picked up last week by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly taking part in the sharing of $2.1 billion meant for arms purchase when Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd) was National Security Adviser.

He was however released after eight hours of interrogation, a development which the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) frowned at because it’s spokesman, Olisah Metuh was still in EFCC custody at the time of filing this report.

A source in the anti-graft body however confirmed to Thinkers Newspaper on Monday that Isa was made to refund about 60 percent of his loot before he was released

“He admitted collecting money from ONSA and he has refunded 60 per cent of the sum credited to him. I think it should be about N100 million.

“Isa is the only person who has so far refunded money among the political figures who collected funds from ONSA. We have granted him bail to allow him time to source for the balance,” the source said.
