Abuja- A former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Adesola Amosu, and 10 others who are being tried for an alleged fraud of N22.8bn have indicated their intention to enter into a plea bargain with the Federal Government.
On trial with Amosun are two other staff of the Airforce – Air Vice Marshal Jacob Adigun and Air Commodore Gbadebo Olugbenga.
The three are being tried alongside eight companies, namely: Delfina Oil and Gas Limited, Mcallan Oil and Gas Limited, Hebron Housing and Properties Company Limited and Trapezites BDC Fonds and Pricey Limited.
News24 reported how the former Chief of Air Staff returned N2.6 billion in looted funds to the Federal Government.
Amosu was charged with money laundering in the amount of N21 billion from the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) and allegedly concealing "proceeds of crime".
After having pleaded not guilty to the charges, Amosu has cooperated with Government officials and has since been released on bail.
The development follows on from the seizure of 29 properties belonging to ex-Air Force Chiefs, including a hospital, houses and equipment.
