The immediate past Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, the Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas Limited, Chief Ifeanyi Ubah and some other key figures during the former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, are reportedly being trailed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in connection with the arrest at the weekend of embattled former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke in the United Kingdom.
A reliable source at the EFCC yesterday told Nigerian Pilot on condition of anonymity that the affected persons will be interrogated in connection with the alleged ‘sale of petroleum products, and crude oil’ by Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, to Ubah’s Capital Oil Limited. It said that investigations so far revealed that the ‘sale’ was actually funds remitted to Capital Oil accounts for political campaign purposes.
According to the source, about N1.2trillion was allegedly siphoned from NNPC accounts to Capital Oil account to fund presidential campaign of former President Goodluck Jonathan and that Chief Ubah and Senator Anyim were responsible for the disbursement of the funds. He said that whereas Capital Oil and Gas Limited and TAN are owned by Ifeanyi Ubah, Anyim was the unseen promoter of Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN)-a group that is known to have publicly funded the campaign of the former President.
The source further added that funds were channelled through a project by name called Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria, TAN. He said that as investigation commenced proper, TAN itself would be investigated on how the organization spent over N1.2trillion in less than six months.
The EFCC source further added that more ministers of the Goodluck Jonathan era will be facing possible arrest in the aftermath of Friday’s detention of ex-Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke in London for alleged corruption.
Hours after the ex-Minister’s arrest on Friday, operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), sealed up her highbrow Asokoro, Abuja residence for a search.
The anti-corruption agency had a court warrant to conduct the search.
Meanwhile, a letter of invitation is expected to be dispatched to the affected public office holders as soon as the chairman of the commission endorsed them.
