EFCC traces Lagos, Bayelsa properties to GEJ ex-aide, Dudafa .

Properties worth N1.5bn have been traced to a former Special Adviser to GEJ on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa, as part of investigations into an alleged case of money laundering, Punchng reports.

Dudafa has, so far, not been able to explain where he got the money to buy them. A source in the EFCC said, “We found a white mansion in Agungi, Lagos, very close to Lekki. He has about 4 exotic cars in the compound. We did not seal it off because people live there. .

So, we just placed a sticker on the fence to indicate that the property is a subject of investigation. He also has a twin duplex around the Chevron Estate. We did not seal it off because he has rented the property out.
However, he has a parcel of land around the place, which we have sealed off. An edifice in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, was also traced to him. We have arraigned Dudafa and if he is found guilty, he will forfeit the properties.”
Dudafa first became a subject of EFCC investigation when a former ADC to GEJ, Col. Ojogbane Adegbe (retd.), told detectives that he handed over N10bn (converted to foreign currency) to Dudafa on the eve of the 2014 PDP presidential primary in which GEJ was the sole aspirant.

The money was allegedly used in bribing PDP delegates and was allegedly diverted by the Office of the National Security Adviser under Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) from a Signature Bonus Account in the CBN.

The N10bn is believed to have been diverted from oil receipts as follows: $5m (Nov. 14, 2014); $47m (Nov. 27, 2014); €4m (Dec. 3, 2014) and €1.6m (Dec. 24, 2014). Dudafa returned N900m to the FG.
Dudafa is also believed to be a front for Dame Patience Jonathan. Patience had said in a sworn affidavit, that she gave him some money to help her open an account at Skye Bank.

She, however, stated that he opened five accounts, of which only one bore her name while the other four were opened in other names. The current balance of the four accounts is $15,591,700 while the money in Patience’s personal account stands at $5m.... unless d gods av increased d balance.#elcutiee #news
