Former Governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Bafarawa, alleged to have collected N4.6billion from embattled ex-National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, has denied receiving any fund from the latter for spiritual purposes.
Bafarawa who is in EFCC custody over the arms purchase scandal, spoke through his former Special Adviser on Youth and Students Matters, Alhaji Akibu Dalhatu.
“The former governor of Sokoto state, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa did not receive any money from Col. Sambo Dasuki for any arms deal or for any purpose” Dalhatu said.
Dalhatu had visited the former governor at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission headquarters Abuja, added that his boss was never arrested at home or anywhere else as has been alleged in some quarters.
He said Mr Bafarawa merely honoured an invitation extended to him by the anti-graft agency.
Bafarawa’s denial is coming on the heels of a similar denial by Dasuki that he made statement implicating some people of having benefitted from the $2billion arms scam.
