Some members of the defunct Campaign Committee of the PDP were shocked that such a huge amount was collected under the table by a few directors.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is battling to recover the money, which was believed to have been sourced illegally.
Some members of the campaign committee have also threatened to spill the bean on other public funds made available which were diverted by some stalwarts of the party.
It was learnt that some of the beneficiaries ran to Jonathan but he insisted that he will not bail out any minister or public officer involved in the deal.
