The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, is in a dilemma over the role the former Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi played in the ongoing Arms Scandal rocking Nigeria.
Sources in the anti-graft agency reports that its operatives are keen on interrogating the Emir on the numerous disbursement of funds to the office of the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd), who is being tried for money laundering, breach of public trust and diversion of public funds. However the operatives were in a fix on what to do in order to get the revered traditional and religious ruler to speak to them on what he knows about the huge sums of money taken away from the nation’s apex bank under the guise of security.
The EFCC is contemplating whether to invite Sanusi or go to meet him quietly to interview him on the funds moved from the bank to the National Security Adviser, during his tenure and why such disbursement were never questioned or declined by him.
Sources in the commission hinted that they were keen on getting first hand information from the Emir but in a way that would not raise any eyebrow or bring the commission into trouble with any individual or religious group.
It was also learnt that the commission’s top official had already visited Kano and would possibly try to seek an avenue to discuss with the emir quietly and return to Abuja.
