Babangida, Obasanjo, Jonathan should be probed – Ex-AD chief, Dayyabu


The National President of the Movement for Justice in Nigeria, Abdulkarim Dayyabu, on Wednesday in Kano called for the probe of past presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, Ibrahim Babagida and Goodluck Jonathan.

He said the only way for the Federal Government to demonstrate its sincerity on the war against corruption was to urgently arrest and prosecute Obasanjo, Babangida, Jonathan and other leaders.

Dayyabu, who was also a former Chairman of the Alliance for Democracy, said this during the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, ‘Africa Unite to Defeat Corruption’ street walk on Wednesday.

He claimed that there were still unrecovered $135bn looted money in the hands of these leaders that must be recovered.

While commending President Buhari’s fight against corruption, Dayyabu said, “if the $135bn is eventually recovered, it should be shared among the 150 million Nigerians, with each person getting $750.

“The move to share the recovered Abacha $350m is a welcome development but should include the collection of other monies from corrupt public officials, which should be quickly shared among the citizenry.”
