FG To Question Atiku Over Bank PHB
The FG further vowed to grill him when he is back from the US.
This was made known today by Lai Mohammed, minister of information while briefing state house correspondents, claiming that there are evidences that Atiku benefited from slush funds that led to the collapse of Bank PHB.
Mohammed said the government has in its possession paper trail which linked the presidential candidate to one Claremont Management Services account through which N156 million was credited to him in 2009, a development that culminated in the “grounding of the bank”.
“It started from an internal memo dated 13 January 2009 asking that a draft in favour of Atiku Abubakar of N156 million should be raised,” he said.
Mohammed further said “another memo on the same date was raised to confirm that the amount was raised from a “claimant management account”.
“We want him to stay in the US for as long as he wants but he has to explain to Nigerians when he returns,” he said.
Lai Mohammed however pointed out that it doesn’t mean Atiku will be arrested upon return to Nigeria.
