#ArmsGate: EFCC on the trail of two PDP Bigwigs on $2.1Bn Arms Cash

According to reports in The Nation, The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is currently on the trail of two Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) bigwigs who may have been implicated in the ongoing $2.1 billion arms deal investigation.

The two bigwigs are the former chairman of the PDP, Adamu Muazu and a former principal private secretary to former president Goodluck Jonathan,  Hassan Tukur, who have been placed on the “watch-list” of the anti-graft agency.

A source within the EFCC disclosed that the two party chieftains have been under investigation in the last few months on the arms cash allegedly disbursed to them for campaign purposes and counter-insurgency initiative with Boko Haram.
“We need to interact with these two leaders, who are on watch-list. Since Muazu went for his daughter’s graduation and medical treatment, we have not been able to locate him.

“We learnt Muazu is around Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia axis. We are on his trail because some suspects have admitted drawing campaign funds from the ex-PDP national chairman. Over N600million has so far been traced to him.

“Tukur is believed to have been seen in the country by security agencies about three or four days ago. He might be invited over the botched deal with Boko Haram, which allegedly involved the payment of a ransom. He is also implicated in the disbursement of some funds for use in the Presidency for campaign and 2015 poll,” the source said
