With the growing list of names of being implicated in $2.1bn arms con­tract scandal involving Sambo Dasuki, the former National Security Adviser,President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant, Sabi’u Yusuf may have been fingered as one of the beneficiaries of the loot by some of Dasuki’s associates.

According to a report on The Sun, some of Dasuki’s associates on Saturday, December 19, 2015 spoke to newsmen threatening to expose proof that those de­nying to have benefitted from the money had collected the amounts ticked against their names.

Speaking further, they expressed shock that some politicians would deny ever having anything to do with the Dasuki when there is proof that they received the mon­ey, threatening to release re­corded video of all transac­tions.


They said: “Some people are shamelessly telling in­defensible lies. We have witnesses and recordings of these visits. A man re­ceived two retired army of­ficers in his private sitting room, called his nephew to collect the bag and would thereafter say he saw noth­ing, heard nothing. This is very laughable.

“How did his nephew who has never worked in his life accumulate over N850 million in his bank account (0045586381) in a new generation bank?

“Let them cover what they think they could, and we would certainly spill the beans for Nigerians to see their hypocrisy.

“All of us would meet in court. But before then if they keep denying, we would release some clips on both YouTube and other forms of social media for the world to see their na­kedness.”

Although the owner of the quoted account was not made available by Dasuki’s associates, further investigation by The Trent reveals that the account may be the Access Bank account belonging to President Buhari’s Personal Assistant (PA), Sabi’u Yusuf.
