Former Chairman of PDP’s Board Of Trustees, Tony Anenih has explained in a letter to the EFCC how he got and shared N260 million from embattled former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki.

A source at EFCC stated that Anenih in the letter said of the N260 million he received, he gave N63 million to a group coordinated by a former Special Assistant to former President Shehu Shagari, Tanko Yakassai, for the 2015 presidential election.

The source said, “Chief Tony Anenih has written the EFCC on how he disbursed N260million from ONSA to various groups including a team being coordinated by Tanko Yakassai. Anenih specifically indicated in the letter that N63million was given to Yakassai’s group. He mentioned a few others whose identities we will not disclose until our investigation has reached an appreciable stage.

We will unveil the names of all the beneficiaries of the N260million soon. But we are at a level that we need to invite Yakassai to shed more light on why his group was allocated N63million arms funds. Besides the letter, we will invite Anenih to make a Statement on Oath and for interrogation.”
