$2bn Arms Deal: Dasuki Denies Implicating PDP Top Shots

Sambo Dasuki

Former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd). has denied media reports linking him with implicating People’s Democratic Party (PDP) top shots, who received heavy payments from security funds from his office.

The former NSA said he neither mentioned nor implicated anyone as having collected arms funds from his office.

Speaking through his lawyer, Mr. Ahmed Raji, Dasuki said he never made such statement or name anyone to EFCC.

“I was with Dasuki yesterday and wish to make categorical statement that my client never made any statement of such nature or naming anybody or group in any statement,” Raji said.

“Quote me anywhere, Dasuki has not done anything like that. It is absolutely untrue. It is the figment of the imagination of the authors aimed at creating falsehood for reasons best known to them and Nigerians should disregard them.

“They are just out to scandalise the man, bring his image and character into disrepute so that his friends and well wishers can run away from him. They want him deserted and that will fail,” he said.
