“Abati has admitted to receiving N500million from Dasuki”, an EFCC source said.
“He has also told us that the money was used to run his office. But we aren’t done with him just yet and we aren’t satisfied with some of his explanations regarding how the money was spent. Details have been rather sketchy from him”, offered the EFCC source.
Through its social media pages, EFCC said Abati “is presently telling operatives of the Commission his role in the alleged mismanagement of the nation’s resources through his office. We shall keep you posted.”
