Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Ekiti, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, has alleged that the Federal Government has moved part of the $321million recovered from the late Gen. Sani Abacha’s family to Ekiti for tomorrow’s election.
Olusola said about $50million of the recovered loot has been moved from Abuja in a chartered flight through Akure Airport to Ekiti.
The Director, Media and Publicity of Kolapo Olusola Campaign Organisation, Lere Olayinka, raised this alarm in Ado Ekiti on Thursday.
He alleged that the money was moved in two bullion vans to support the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s governorship candidate, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
He said: “After offloading the huge cash, the bullion van first moved to the Ondo State Government House in Akure, from where they left for Isan Ekiti, the hometown of Fayemi.”
Olusola claimed that preliminary findings indicated it was the Kebbi State government that transferred N2.5billion cash to an account in UBA, Wuse Zone 4, Abuja.
“It was withdrawn immediately and moved with a private jet to Akure.
“Also, apart from the N2.5 billion, another $50m (about N18billion) was taken from the $321million recovered from the late Abacha’s family.
The Kayode Fayemi Campaign Organisation has however debunked the accusation.
Its director of Media and Publicity, Wole Olujobi, in statement, said the allegation was a “hallucinating imagination.”
He said it was a lie concocted to paint a negative picture.
