Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has quizzed a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Olu Falae, over his alleged role in the $15bn arms scam, reports Punch.

Falae according to News 24 had in February admitted to collecting N100m from a former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Board of Trustees, Tony Anenih, during the build-up to the 2015 presidential election.

The money was reportedly given to Falae to get his party, the Social Democratic Party (SDP), to endorse former PresidentGoodluck Jonathan, and campaign for him in the 2015 election.

The N100m was said to have emanated from the imprest account of the ONSA domiciled in the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The money, which Falae got was said to be part of the N3.145bn transferred from the account of the ONSA to the bank account of Joint Trust Dimensions Limited, a company allegedly owned by the Director of Finance of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Senator Nenadi Usman.

Falae, however, maintained that he did not know that the money was from the ONSA.

Falae was grilled for several hours and was allowed to go home on the condition that he would return in the next two weeks.
