Just In: Jonathan Denies 'Hate-filled' Comments On Biafra

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has disclosed that it is probing campaign donations for the 2015 presidential campaign of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

An EFCC investigator, Shehu Shuaibu made the disclosure on Tuesday during cross-examination in a continued money laundering case before the federal high court in Lagos.

Punch reports him as saying alleged donations into the bank account of Joint Trust Dimensions Limited, one of the defendants in the case relating to Jonathan’s campaign, are still being investigated.

Femi Fani-Kayode, former finance minister, Nenadi Usman and an official of the Jonathan campaign organization Yusuf Danjuma are also listed as defendants in the N4.9 billion money laundering case.

Shuaibu, the third prosecution counsel in the case, was being cross-examined by Ferdinand Orbih, Usman’s lawyer, at the hearing on Tuesday.

He was quoted to have listed some of the cash inflows into the bank account of the firm as “N500m from Global Scan System Ltd on February 11, 2015; N300m from Diamond Bank on January 30, 2015; N250m from Castillo Torres BDC Ltd on February 11, 2015; N100m from Afrigate Energy Ltd, and N500m from Chief Emeka Ofor on March 13, 2015.”

He, however, said, “I am not sure if they (the monies identified) were truly donations, as some of these alleged donated monies are still under investigation.”

Naija News recalls Jonathan eventually lost the 2015 presidential election to Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress.
