#Dasukigate- Hospital Got N750M For 'Special Prayers'

Over the past one month, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been investigating how the former National Security Adviser (NSA) to former president Goodluck Jonathan,  Sambo Dasuki spent the sum of $2.1bn (N10 billion) given to him for an arms deal. The investigations started when it was reported that Sambo Dasuki was given $2.1bn  for the purchase of arms to fight against Boko Haram but he never purchased them.

Since his indictment, Dasuki has pointed fingers at several people including Raymond Dokpesi, owner of DAAR communications limited, Bashir Yuguda, a former minister of state for finance, Attahiru Bafarawa, a former Sokoto state governor and Mr. Shuaibu Salisu, a former Director of Finance in the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

Allegedly, between them all, the $2.1 billion was misappropriated and a certain Reliance Referral Hospital Limited  (which is still under construction ) got N750 million for "special prayers."

Special prayers indeed. LOL!

See pictures of the hospital below and a breakdown of the alleged misappropriation of $2.1 billon meant for the arms deal by Dasuki and others:

  • N1.5 billion: An agreement between Dasuki and a a former minister of state for finance, Bashiru Yuguda. Bashiru Yuguda also gave a breakdown on how he spent the fund:
  • N600 million: This amount was sent to the chairmen of the Contact and Mobilisation Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2015 general election, Bode George, Amb. Yerima Abdullahi; Peter Odili; Attahiru Bafarawa; Jim Nwobodo; and Ahmadu Ali.
  • N300 million: He instructed Jabbama Limited to transfer N300 million to BAM Properties whose account detail was given to him by a former National Chairman of PDP, Bello Haliru
  • N200 million: He sent this amount to the former PDP Governorship candidate in Kebbi State, Bello Sarkin Yaki.
  • N100 million: This amount was given to a former Governor of Zamfara State, Mahmud Aliyu Shinkafi
  • N100 million: He also instructed Jabbama Limited to transfer the sum of N100m to Dalhatu Limited on the request of Attahiru Bafarawa.

  • N120 million: Sent to Nduka Obaigbena as compensation for 12 newspaper houses whose copies soldiers seized in June 2014. The newspapers are Thisday, Vanguard, The Sun, The Nation, New Telegraph, Daily Trust, People’s Daily, Leadership, Daily Independence, Nigerian Tribune, The Guardian and Business Day.
  • N170 million: Purchase of a four-bedroom duplex
  • N260 million: Sent to Tony Anenih
