According to Sahara Reporters, Ex
National Security Adviser, Sambo
Dasuki, perpetrated a N1.75bn
Cash for arms fraud before being
relieved of his post.
SaharaReporters has learned of a
(N1,751,864,867) fraud in the
Office of the National Security
Adviser (NSA) during the just-
terminated tenure of Mr. Sambo
The fraud pertains to shipments of
guns and ammunitions allegedly
for the fight against Boko Haram
terrorists, for which the amount
was allegedly allocated for the
purchase of arms and
ammunition, none of which seem
to have ever arrived in Nigeria.
This fraud appears to have been
perpetrated at a time that Nigeria
was in desperate need of military
hardware to fight the insurgency
in the northeast of the country,
with Boko Haram murdering or
abducting thousands of civilians.
The then President, Mr. Goodluck
Jonathan, and his officials, were
also openly critical of
international partners, including
the United States, for not selling
arms to Nigeria.
