13 April 2016, 11:24

Abuja - It has been revealed that dollars equivalent of N558.2million monthly was personally given to the immediate past Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh.

A former Director of Finance and Account of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), Air Commodore Aliyu Yishau (rtd), told a Federal High Court on Tuesday in Abuja.

Yishau declared that he always handed the money to Badeh in person. He, however, said he did not have personal records of the transaction, but that all records in relation to the money handed to Badeh, while he (the witness) was in office, were with NAF’s Command’s Finance Officer, Group Captain Sini.

He said Badeh benefited from the practice of setting aside N558.2million monthly from the remnant of NAF staff salary funds for the personal use of the Chief of Air Staff from October 2012 (when Badeh became Chief of Air Staff) to December 2013 (when the witness retired from service).
