Abuja - A former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, has denied ever making statement implicating anyone or group in the allegation of dubious $2billion arms purchase deal brought against him by the federal government.
There were reports Thursday that Dasuki, while being quizzed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, named some prominent Nigerians among those who got huge funds from his office while he was NSA.

But Dasuki, who spoke through his lawyer, Ahmed Raji, (SAN) said he never made any implicating statement or named anyone to EFCC and wondered where the authors got their information from.
Meanwhile the case between the Federal Government and Dasuki over allegations of money laundering and illegal arms possession came up Thursday at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
During Thursday’s proceedings, the federal government appointed a private legal practitioner, Oladipupo Okpeseyitan, SAN, to continue the prosecution of Dasuki.
