A top official in EFCC says contrary to reports, the arms
deal scandal is $15 billion not $2.1billion. Daily Trust
reports that the EFCC official who spoke on condition of
anonymity, said the $2.1 billion that has been linked to
former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, is just one
transaction out of the $15 billion arms deal fraud;
“The actual amount involved in the arms deal is $15
billion. The $2.1 billion was just one transaction out
of it. Majority of the companies involved in the arms
deal are owned by serving military officers. They
registered these companies using the names of
their cronies. Despite the fact that they returned
some money, we are still going to prosecute them,”
he said.
