Arms Deal: We will release videos of those who collected money – Dasuki’s friends

The last may not have been heard in the controversies trailing the arms procurement scandal and the travails of the immediate past National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, as some associates of the former NSA have threatened to expose those who collected money but are denying it.

The associates, who spoke to newsmen in Abuja but asked that their identity be protected, said it was shocking that these people could turn around to deny having anything to do with the former NSA or his office when there are evidences to the contrary.

According to the asso­ciates, they were prepared to build up graphic cases against those denying receiving either material or cash gifts from the former NSA, insisting that there are video recordings of the transactions.

“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,” the associates said.

Dasuki has been in the eye of the storm over the disbursment of money meant for arms and intelligence equipment procurement for purposes different from what it was meant for.

The former NSA and and a former Minister of State for Finance, Yuguda however mentioned the names of prominent Nigerians who received various sums of money from them.
