His statement of witness read in part:
“For the cash disbursement of N600million, it was meant
for the six zonal chairmen for Contact and Mobilisation
Committees for Election of 2015. The chairmen are Bode
George, Amb. Yerima Abdullahi; Peter Odili; Attahiru
Bafarawa; Jim Nwobodo; Ahmadu Ali. The sum of
N100million was given to each chairman. I gave the money
in company of Prof Alkali, who was Political Adviser to
former president. The zonal chairmen are for the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP). I also instructed Jabbama Limited
to transfer the sum of N100m to Dalhatu Limited on the
request of Attahiru Bafarawa.
“I also remember that Bello Sarkin Yaki was among the
people that the then NSA instructed that I send the sum of
N200million to. He was the PDP gubernatorial candidate in
Kebbi state.”
