Former Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Governor, Godwin Emefiele, has reportedly refunded about N4trillion to the coffers of the Federal Government.
The money was reportedly stolen by Mr. Emefiele while he was at the helm of affairs of the apex bank.
According to source close to the investigators, besides reportedly returning N4trillion, Emefiele also allegedly gave up ownership of six banks linked to him.
In a similar development, the source revealed that a former CBN Deputy Governor, Tunde Lemo, also reportedly refunded $500million embezzled taxpayers’ money.
The most shocking of all, however, was the discovery of $275million in the bank account of a six year old son of Sabiu Yusuf, a.k.a Tunde, a Personal Assistant to former President Muhammadu Buhari.
Also, discovered was another N1.5 trillion in the personal account of the former Personal assistant to former President Buhari.
The source said: “The Special Investigator, Jim Osayande Obazee and his committee, allegedly discovered $275 million in an account in a new generation bank belonging to six years old son of Sabiu Yusuf.
“Another N1.5 trillion also allegedly traced to Yusuf, a very influential member of the former President Mohammadu Buhari’s Govt.
“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is currently negotiating, using some influential Nigerians on how to refund the funds without being exposed.
“Only recently, National Security Adviser, NSA, Nuhu Ribadu, lamented that the current administration inherited a bankrupt country from the Buhari’s government due to the large scale looting that occurred then.”
President Tinubu had employed the services of Mr. Obazee, a Special Investigator, to investigate the activities of the CBN under Emefiele and related entities.
So far, Obazee has recovered over N12 trillion looted mostly by members of the former President Buhari’s administration.
The source also noted that the committee has also rejected several millions of Dollars in bribe offers from former members of the Buhari’s Government to avoid being arrested and exposed.
