Youth Urges FCT Minister, to probe JIBA over IGR

A whooping sum of N15.2 billion has allegedly been recovered from the immediate past Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu (rtd), Air Commodore Salisu Abdullhari Yushau, former director of Finance, NAF, and three other senior air force officers who were indicted in the arms deals scandal.
A highly placed source at the EFCC during the weekend told Nigerian Pilot that Amosun and his wife alone returned N2.3billion to the federal government, additional N5.2billion that was allegedly traced to his wife’s bank account, and another N381million that was found cash in his house.
Nigerian Pilot also gathered that the former director of Finance, Yushau, who is now the principal witness in the trial of embattled former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh (rtd), coughed out the sum of N4.3billion as part of the looted fund to the federal government.
According to source, the sum of over N5bn was also realised from three other senior officers who were indicted by the presidential panel that was set up by President Muhammadu Buhari late last year.
The EFCC source further added that Amosu issued two bank drafts to the federal government as part of the funds allegedly diverted by his
office as Chief of Air Staff.
The source said, “I can confirm to you that Amosu has returned N2.3billion. He raised two bank drafts. One draft was N2bn
while the second was N300million.”
Nigerian Pilot recalls that on February 11, 2016, that houses belonging to Amosu worth over N500miollion was seized by the Economic and financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
In Amosu’s Badagry home, the EFCC had also recovered about $140,000 in cash.
Nigerian Pilot also recalls that the anti-graft agency recovered N381million from Amosu’s wife, Omolara.
The money was recovered in three tranches of N180million, N101million and N100million, apart from the N5.2billionn allegedly found in a new generation bank.
Another senior operative in the EFCC also told Nigerian Pilot that the money was traced from the account of the Nigeria Air Force to the bank accounts of a company in which Amosu’s wife is a director.
The EFCC had recovered at least N4billion from Amosu in cash and assets.
