PDP secretary offers to return Dasuki loot

18 April 2016, 18:36

Abuja - National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prof. Wale Oladipo has appealed to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to be allowed to refund the N75 million he received from ex-National Security Adviser (NSA),  Sambo Dasuki.

Oladipo’s request is contained in a letter to the Vice President in which he sought to be excluded from prosecution.

The existence of the letter by Oladipo was confirmed in the suit he filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja, through his lawyer Babs Akinwumi.

In the suit, Oladipo is seeking to restrain the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC), the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the Department of State Services (DSS) from holding him.

The PDP National Secretary, in a supporting affidavit, said he wrote the Vice President on his intention to refund the money he received from the Office of the NSA, without knowledge that it was proceed of unlawful dealings, with the understanding that he would be shielded from prosecution.

He alleged that the EFCC, ICPC and the DSS were being used by agents of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to harass, intimidate and persecute him, being a key opposition figure.
