Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reacted with “shock and disbelief” to insinuations in some quarters linking him to the embattled ex-National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd).
Below is a statement issued by Mallam Nuhu Ribadu:
My attention has been drawn to insinuations in certain quarters of my purported repayment of some monies I was allegedly given by the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd).
For the record, let me categorically state that I had nothing to do with the former NSA while he was in office. I cannot remember meeting him at anytime while he held sway. It is therefore shocking for me to be accused of receiving something from someone I never had any relationship with, not to talk of refunding money he gave me.
Let me reiterate that I did NOT receive any money at any time from the ex-NSA, either directly or through a proxy. There is therefore no reason for me to make any refund.
Also, I have not been contacted by any security agency on this matter to warrant any action of that nature on my part.
Those trying to discreetly plant that story should come forward with documentary evidence to suggest that I refunded money. The security agencies are there to confirm or deny this.
