The Former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (Rtd.) has denied ever mentioning or implicating any Peoples Democratic Party top shots or former Governors in the allegation of dubious $2billion arms purchase levelled against him by the federal government
Dasuki said he neither mentioned nor implicated anyone as having collected arms funds from his office as NSA.
There were reports in some media (not Grennews.ng) that Dasuki has named some PDP top shots and ex Governors as part of those who benefited from the $2billion arms contracts.
However, speaking on Thursday, through his lawyer, Mr. Ahmed Raji, Dasuki said he never made such statement or name anyone to EFCC and wondered where the authors got their information from.
Raji said: “I was with Dasuki yesterday and wish to make categorical statement that my client never made any statement of such nature or naming anybody or group in any statement.
“Quote me anywhere, Dasuki has not done anything like that. It is absolutely untrue. It is the figment of the imagination of the authors aimed at creating falsehood for reasons best known to them and Nigerians should disregard them.
“They are just out to scandalise the man, bring his image and character into disrepute so that his friends and well wishers can run away from him. They want him deserted and that will fail,” he said.
