Sanusi, who was sacked by Jonathan in February last year for alleging that $20bn was missing from the account of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, said if the former petroleum minister was found guilty by a UK court, it would serve as a deterrent to corrupt people.

The PBS NewsHour said it had in its possession a letter written by the embattled former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), and addressed to the CBN, requesting $47m.

The letter, which was written on the letterhead of the Office of the NSA, titled ‘Request of Funds for Special Services’ with reference number, NSA/366S, was dated November, 2014.
