Dasukigate: Efcc On The Trail Of Adamu Mu’azu

SAN FRANCISCO, January 12, (THEWILL) – The former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Adamu Mu’azu, is being wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to explain his role in the $2bn arms deal.
Sources who spoke with THEWILL revealed that Muazu, whose whereabouts was unknown, was central to the disbursement of funds to party leaders and thus had a case to answer.

Muazu was said to be central to the disbursement of funds to six chairmen of the Contact and Mobilisation Committees for the geopolitical zones.

The coordinators were Bode George, Jim Nwobodo, Yerima Abdullahi, Ahmadu Ali, Attahiru Bafarawa and Peter Odili.

Muazu, a former governor of Bauchi State, is said to have travelled abroad since he stepped down as the PDP chair following the party's defeat at the 2015 elections.

Indications also emerged that the commission is closing in on some former Presidential aides, including those of former Vice-President Namadi Sambo.
