EFCC ransacks ex Vice President, Sambo’s Abuja office, seize $50,000

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC on Saturday January 30th, stormed the Abuja office of former Vice President Namadi Sambo, ransacked it for documents and also seized $50,000.

According to a report by The Nation, the anti-graft agency may have ransacked his office over an alleged N20 million monthly subvention he received from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) while he was Vice President.

It was learnt that the search was informed by the unusual movement of hefty bags into the office of Sambo’s Manyatha Company on Saturday. EFCC sources say the relocation of the suspicious bags from Sambo's home to the office made the agency act swiftly.

One of the EFCC sources said
"The ongoing investigation of $2.1 billion arms cash under ex-NSA Sambo Dasuki has been extended to the former VP. The search started on Saturday till the early hours of Monday. Apart from getting N20 million monthly from ONSA, we got tip-off on movement of some bags loaded with hard currency. All we did was to investigate this clue by searching the ex-VP’s office in a cautious manner and in the full glare of the employees. At the appropriate time, we will inform the public of our findings. We are also looking at the circumstances behind the N20 million grant allocated to the ex-VP’s office by the ONSA. Ordinarily, a sitting VP has a budget for his office. It is like subjugating your office to a junior public officer if you have to be taking N20 million from the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA). We cannot be blind to this important aspect of monthly grant to a VP by the former security adviser. Some former presidential aides are also under investigation.”
A source close to the former Vice President confirmed the search of the office in Abuja’s Central Business District (CBD).
“The EFCC operatives invaded the Manyatha Company of the former Vice President on Saturday, broke the doors. The operatives did not come with any warrant and when they left, there was no record of inventories. What happened was that the ex-VP moved some documents in Ghana-Must-Go bags from his house to the office in the Central Business District. I think they got false alarm that dollars were stuffed in the bags and decided to raid the office on the sixth floor. We share the same office complex with the British Visa Section. Do you know that since Saturday, the policemen brought by the EFCC are still in the office? The EFCC asked the company to repair its doors before the police could leave the place.”
On the alleged N20 million collected monthly from ONSA, the source added:
“It is a statutory subvention for the Office of the Vice President. When ex-President Goodluck Jonathan was VP, he was getting it. The same subvention was given to ex-VP Atiku Abubakar. Ex-VP Sambo is ready to defend the subvention when necessary. He did not steal public funds and he did not get campaign funds from ONSA.”

God will even punish Buhari anyday he extend this his so called arms deal and so called fighting corruption to GEJ or his wife or sambo.... He should tell this stupid EFCC not to link GEJ to this nonsense

Sure Boss said...

What is $50,000 to a former VP, why should EFCC come and steal his money ? Must they always go abt harassing people in the name of fighting corruption. This buhari is so clueless and devilish... People r hungry and ur telling us that ur fighting corruption, is that what the average Nigerian need
