Nigeria’s security agencies shared N16.5bn for ‘2015 elections logistics’

In continuation of the anti-corruption crusade of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, anti-graft investigators have discovered that N16.5 billion was allegedly released to the Nigeria Police, Nigerian Air Force, Nigerian Army and Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) for “logistics requirement for 2015 elections.”

The discovery was made in the course of investigations into the activities of the ONSA, The Nation reports.

Already, a similar investigation into the ONSA has resulted in the arrest and criminal prosecution of several notable individuals involved in the misappropriation of $2.1 billion intended for the purchase of arms to prosecute the war against Boko Haram insurgency.

The former National Security Adviser (NSA), Colonel Sambo Dasuki, and several others, are on trial for corruption.

The breakdown of the funds said to have been given to the different security agencies is as follows: IGP General Election OPS Fund Account (N10billion); Nigerian Air Force OPS Account (N1billion); Nigerian Army Operations Account (N5billion) and ONSA (N500million).

According to a source quoted in the report, “All the payment details have been received from the Central Bank of Nigeria for scrutiny.”

“This explains why some of the accused persons on trial were rearrested for questioning. We have been uncovering many transactions which require more explanation.”
