The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Gombe zonal office today quizzed a former Ag. Governor of Taraba State, Sani Abubakar Danladi in respect of the N450m collected by him through Senators Joel Dallami Ikenya and Hon. Mark Bako Useni during the 2015 Presidential Election.
The amount in question was part of the N23b allegedly doled out by former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, to influence the outcome of the 2015 presidential election.
Danladi told interrogators that he chaired the 8man committee that disbursed the money for Taraba state. He further stated that, he and the other members of the committee shared N36m among themselves while the balance of N414m was distributed to other stakeholders across the 16 local government areas of the state and one Development Area Council.
Danladi was arrested and detained in Abuja last week,and later released on bail to reliable sureties, but asked to report to EFCC Gombe Zonal for further investigation.
