Abuja - The bank account of a company belonging to a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Olu Falae, has been frozen.

The account with the United Bank for Africa titled Marecco Nigeria Limited is with number 1000627022.
The money was said to have emanated from the account of the National Security Adviser which is domiciled in the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Falae had said, “It is true that N100m was given to my party to endorse and work for Jonathan candidacy in the 2015 presidential election. We used the money for that purpose and we effectively campaigned for the PDP since we did not have a presidential candidate in the election. The money was not for me".
