obadina - #DasukiGate : First witness presented in N2.4 bn case against Obadina

The Economic and financial crimes commission (EFCC) has presented their first witness PW1, Umar Bello, to kick-start the trial of one Olugbenga Obadina, Chairman and Managing Director, Almond Projects Limited, who is facing an eight-count charge of fraud before Justice Nnamdi Dimgba of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Obadina allegedly collected money to the tune of N2.4billion from the Office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA, under Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) purportedly for a phony contract.He was alleged of collecting a sum of N2, 417, 000,000.00 (two billion, four hundred and seventeen million naira), paid into his company’s account in tranches, between 2013 and 2015 from the account of the ONSA under Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) without contract award.

This is just one of the many cases leveled against the former NSA who is yet to be arraigned and currently in detention.
