US show exposes transactions between CBN and Dasuki

07 December 2015, 10:46

Abuja - American TV show PBS NewsHour has revealed that it is in possession of documents detailing transactions between former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki and the Central Bank of Nigeria.

As part of a week-long series titled 'Nigeria: Pain and Promise', the show will detail challenges faced by the nation in the fight against corruption, Naij reports. 

The document in question features the embattled ex-NSA receiving $336 million from the bank despite his office only having a budget of $160 million a year.

The show also claims to be in possession of a letter demanding $47 million from CBN. The funds were said to have been delivered to Dasuki's office in cash, transported in armoured cars in the dead of night.

A second letter is also reported to have been discovered, complete with a NNPC letterhead, requesting $289,202,382 from the bank for the account of the National Intelligence Agency.

The allegations come hot on the heels of an investigation into the movement of N67.2 billion from the Central Bank of Nigeria under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan's administration.

No comment has been made from Dasuki's office at this time.
