‘Dasuki dashed me N50 million’ – Abati tells EFCC

Mr. Reuben Abati, the former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Media, has been granted bail by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).


Reports also indicated that he explained that Dasuki `dashed’ him N50 million. According to APA reports, the bail conditions require that Abati should drop his international passport with the EFCC and produce a surety, who should not be below a deputy director on Level 16 in the civil service of the country.

Abati was arrested last Monday on allegations that he received N100 million from the former National Security Adviser, rtd Col. Sambo Dasuki. The former presidential spokesman was the chairman of the editorial board of the Guardian newspaper before his appointment.

Dasuki has been held for the misappropriation of the $2.1 billion meant for the purchase of arms for the prosecution of the war against Boko Haram. Many people have been arrested in connection with the sharing of the money with some offering to refund part or all they got.

  1. Thieves keep lavishing our money


  2. Reason for d country recession is not far fetched. Very few vagabonds milk d economy dry. ‘Dasuki dashed him N50m’. Irresponsibility of a high order. Blood money.


  3. See the way they keep dashing themselves the financial resources that belong to many poor people.

    It was because they perceived that the head of the house (Jonathan) was too weak and careless.

    This news baffles me a lot. How are the mighty fallen? We should not tell it in Gath. Neither should we publish it in the street of Ashkelon. Dr. Reuben Abati making a confession that Dasuki dashed him 50 million Naira? The man who in his time could breath fire and brimstone through his cutting edge analyses on the Nigerian kleptomaniac politicians, leaders and rulers? I wonder whether or not Reuben Abati asked Dasuki why he needed to be ‘dashed’ money when he would normally receive his salary and other emoluments. I wonder whether or not he asked the ‘blesser’ where he got the money from. And I wonder what the then Patito’s Gang would be thinking now. Does the gang still exist? I’m sure Prof Pat Utomi is a sad man now.
