The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), is on the trail of a former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adamu Muazu, and a former Principal Private Secretary to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Hassan Tukur, over their alleged involvement in the $2.1billion armsgate.
Mu’azu and Tukur are alleged to have diverted cash meant for arms into the 2015 election campaign and payment of huge ransom to unknown Boko Haram agents.
Mu’azu is believed to have fled to Hong Kong or Singapore and a security source said they were trying to locate where he is hiding and collaborate with the INTERPOL to extradite him.
According to a top security source, Muazu and Tukur 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.
The source said: “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.”
