Abuja - The legal team of detained former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki is expecting former President Goodluck Jonathan to testify in court in the ongoing $2.2bn arms deal probe, Naij reports.
Former President Goodluck Jonathan last week said it was impossible for the National Security Adviser (NSA) during his administration, Sambo Dasuki, to have stolen $2.2 billion as claimed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) according to News24.
Dasuki, who has been in detention since December 1, 2015, was arrested by the State Security Service for allegedly misappropriating $2.2 billion meant to purchase equipment for the Nigerian military in its battle against the terrorist Boko Haram group.
Jonathan, who spoke at the famous Oxford Union, Oxford United Kingdom, on youth entrepreneurship, argued that it was “not just possible” for Dasuki to have stolen $2.2 billion after his administration procured several equipment for the country’s military.
Jonathan’s statement has caught the attention of Dasuki’s defence team who hope to invite him as a witness and possible exonerate the former national security adviser.
