Details have emerged of how the 300 individuals and companies involved in the questionable award of contracts amounting to N116 billion by the Office of the National Security Adviser, will return the said monies to the federal government.

The anti-graft agencies involved in the investigation will determine whether about N75 billion should be recovered back from some of the companies.

The committee set up to investigate the NSA found out that some persons and firms were involved in the following: breach of contract terms, non-execution of contracts, haphazard or partial completion of contracts, collection of funds for un-executed contracts, diversion of funds for political purposes, and sheer mismanagement of contract funds.

A breakdown of the amounts expected from some of those involved are as follows: Acacia Holding Limited – (N600m and N650m); Reliance Referral Hospitals Limited – N750m (16/4/2015); African Cable Television Limited -N350million; Dalhatu Investment Limited(N500m) -20/12/13 and N200m on 17/3/15;,Duchy Concepts Limited RC392281(N70m) – 17/3/15; Wehsec Farms Limited RC 713258(N200m); Stellavera Dev Company – N250m; Stellavera Dev Company- N250m; Societe d’Equipments internationaux – $6,954,000(21/4/2015), $30m(9/5/15); $50m(9/3/15); €1, 395, 346.84(11/12/13); €1,401,869(2/10/13); €2, 252,252.25; $16m (20/5/14); $38m(20/5/14); $36m(20/5/14); $5m(4/6/14); $10m(11/7/14).

Some of the individuals expected to return funds include Dr. Bello Matawalle – N300m; Bello Fadile -N100m and Bashir Yududa N1.5 billion.

According to a source in the EFCC, who spoke to The Nation: “Some of those indicted have outstanding cases under investigation by our agency. These allegations are intertwined and we may have to improve on a few clues.”

“The latest assignment is to recover the sums against these 300 persons and companies. A few of them had written to the commission to refund some money illegally collected for jobs undone.”

“In line with the mandate of the Presidency, we will get to the root of the allegations against those already referred to us. We will also collaborate with other investigating agencies.”

The source noted that some of the persons and companies involved in the scandal will be legally prosecuted.
