The EFCC raided the residence yesterday and made the startling discovery.
Also, Mrs Lara Amosu, the man’s wife has been picked up by the EFCC over sums of money totaling over Three Billion Naira discovered in her private bank accounts.
AVM Amosu has been in the custody of the EFCC for some days now and is said to be cooperating in the investigations.
Several choice properties acquired by the man have been sealed off by the EFCC. These include the ultra Mordern St. Solomon’s Hospital at Adeniyi Jones Ikeja worth about 85 million Naira. There is also another house on Adeyemo Alakija Street Ikeja near the Ghanaian High Commission with a market value of over 200 million Naira.
Perhaps the biggest of them is the involvement of AVM J B Adigun, the immediate past Chief of Accounts and Budgeting of the Nigeria Air Force. That one bought properties all over the place. Some of them include a block of 12 luxury flats at Park View Estate, Ikoyi worth over 1.7 billion Naira. There is also another block of luxury flats on Sinari Daranijo Street, Victoria Island Lagos with a market value of about 1.8 billion Naira. He also owns a parcel of land on Bourdillion Drive Ikoyi worth about 908 million Naira, four terrace terrace duplexes on Agede Street off Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse Zone 2 Abuja.
All of these properties were acquired in the last two years.
There is also AVM O O Gbadebo who was Director of Finance and Budget of the Nigeria Airforce. That one also has properties scattered all over the place and is the currently managing the said St. Solomon’s Hospital Ikeja on behalf of his boss, Adigun.
AVM Adigun’s wife has reportedly fled the country and the EFCC is looking for her desperately.
These are the leaders of the Nigeria Air Force who were given the sum of $930,500,690.00 to buy arms and ammunition for our soldiers to fight Boko Haram.
In one incident, they spent $136.9 million on two second hand Mi-24M helicopters instead of the recommended Mi-35M series.
Even the ones they bought were allegedly not airworthy at the time of delivery and meanwhile, a brand new unit of that helicopter costs about $30 million, yet they bought two second ones at a cost of $136.9 million.
Every day, people come out here to tell us how the value of the Naira is falling. Why won’t it fall? Why? In the midst of this kind of stealing?
Yet, this was what people wanted us to continue with.
Even if Buhari does not achieve any other thing in four years but succeeds in dealing with these crooks and thieves, I will be satisfied.
Meanwhile, this is just for the Airforce o. We have not heard about the Army and Navy.
Nonsense and ingredient!
