The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) may invite former Vice-President Namadi Sambo for questioning following revelations that his office allegedly got a monthly stipend of N20m from the office of the NSA.
According to a source in the commission, Sambo might be invited this week.
Former Accounts Officer II, Ibrahim Idris Wambai, in his statement to the EFCC, had said he made several cash payments to former presidential spokesperson, Doyin Okupe, and Ahmad Idris, a personal assistant to the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.).
EFCC sources said Wambai had been singing like a canary since his arrest and interrogation.
He added that the accounts officer had also mentioned several of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s aides as beneficiaries of Dasuki’s largesse.
The source said everyone mentioned in the scandal would be invited to write a statement. According to him, President Buhari was not interested in protecting anyone irrespective of class or region.
He said, “Everyone that Wambai mentioned would be called upon to tell us what they know. And I do not think the former vice-president will be exempted. All the names are in the public and Nigerians would be expecting us to do justice to all. And that is what we intend to do. No sacred cows.”
