I don’t Know Dasuki, Says Bode George, As EFCC Asks Dokpesi To Produce N2.1bn Contract Details

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is battling to resolve the riddle behind those, many of them Peoples Democratic Party Chieftains who allegedly got a slice of the “phoney” $2billion arms contracts cake?

Sources in the agency had confirmed it is probing the role (if any) of Chief Olabode George, former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, former Rivers State Governor Peter Odili and a former General Officer Commanding (GOC) 82 Division, Maj.-Gen. Sarkin-Yaki Bello.
Although the three were under EFCC’s watch yesterday, none of them had been arrested as at press time. In fact, Bode George denied knowing former National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki.

The clues on them were said to be preliminary, based on references by some suspects.

Meanwhile, the EFCC has asked the owner of DAAR Communications Raymond Dokpesi who accepted to receiving N2.1bn from Dasuki to produce the contract dcuments, a source in the agency said.

We have asked him to produce evidence of award of the contract, the terms of the contract, the schedule of execution and how the contract was related to arms purchase.

“The media owner also gave some evidence and we have to get in touch with those concerned and organisations to verify his claims.

“For a while, the suspects will be with us and we will treat them well – in line with international best practices.”

It was learnt that the EFCC has written some media owners to clarify what Dokpesi meant by being “embedded in various organizations.”

“In making up his defence, Dokpesi told interrogators that he was embedded in some media organisations.

“We don’t know what he meant and we have written the affected media to explain if they were given any share of the N2.1billion for publicity .”
