$2b Malabu oil scam: Atiku warns Adoke to stop maligning him

24 February 2016, 13:19

Abuja - Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has asked ex-Attorney General, Mohammed Adoke to stop implicating him in the controversial Malabu oil scandal.

Atiku gave the warning while reacting to the claim in letter written by the immediate past Attorney General to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo that letter that he (Atiku) was among those behind his travails for not assisting them to get a share of the $2 billion as ‘shareholders’ of Malabu.

In the letter to Osinbajo on Monday, Adoke had alleged that the aggrieved individuals including Atiku, who is posing as Lawal Abba were behind the smear campaign against him for not extending the proceeds of the deal to them.

Adoke said he was informed that these individuals had enlisted a notorious online media to smear his name with allegations of corruption and bribery and that some agents of the Abacha family and one Lawal Abba acting for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, a former Vice President were behind the scheme.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) began a discreet probe into the $2billion Malabu Oil deal to ascertain whether the country was short-changed.

Adoke had already written to the EFCC on how the deal was struck with Shell Nigeria Ultra Deep Limited (SNUD).

He said although the 2006 transaction predate his appointment as the nation’s former AGF, it was transparent and value-driven.
