Reuben Abati Says He Doesn't Have Any Money To Return To EFCC

Detained former presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati, has told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission that he does not have any money to refund to the government, sources within the agency said.



According to Premium Times, the sources said Mr. Abati told interrogators that he had no immediate means of sourcing the amount for which he is being detained.

The EFCC accuses Mr. Abati of receiving N50 million from the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

The money was part of $2.1 billion allocated for purchase of arms for the fight against Boko Haram, the EFCC says.

Mr. Dasuki is currently standing trial for allegedly misusing the money.
The latest development came days after Mr. Abati reportedly promised to refund N5 million.

The former presidential spokesperson has been in EFCC detention since turning himself in last week Monday.
Apart from being unable to refund the money, Mr. Abati also allegedly told investigators that he could not provide documentary evidence showing how he spent the N50 million.

Mr. Abati reportedly said he disbursed the money as cash and material gifts to journalists during the 2015 campaign.
Asked to name names of media practitioners who benefited from the largess, Mr. Abati said he did not keep such records.

“We thought he would be able to pay N5 million yesterday, but it turned out that he doesn’t have any money,”.

It was also clarified that Mr. Abati had met his bail conditions since Friday, but the EFCC had refused to release him.

The EFCC had on October 26 granted Mr. Abati an administrative bail, and required as one of the conditions for his release, a surety of the level of director in the federal civil service.

Those conditions were met on Friday, our source said, but the EFCC failed to release him because of the stalemate over the N50 million.

The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, did not respond to requests for comment.

    1. Yes she is one of the recipients because you pay for advert on blogs. It's not free. You too would have, if you had a platform for advert. I remember vividly when she asked her readers whether to accept campaign advert payment and everyone said yes. That month, she doubled her giveaway to 200k. What is wrong with that?

      Delete
    2. See them! Ndi uchu! N50 million for a national media campaign covering, Radio, Tv, outdoor advertising, blog adverts is waaaaay to small.

      Haba! This is a classic case of giving a dog a bad name.

      If you are in the media industry you would know that N50 million for NATIONAL MEDIA coverage for a political campaign is so small!

      Stella u sef sabi say N50 million dey small! I really amm trying to understand why EFCC is keeping this man in their custody even after meeting bail conditions

      Are you so scared of Reuben's pen?

      I don't belong to any party but my brain still works o.

      Did APC use N50 million ONLY for the media campaign coverage for the immediate past National Campaign?

      I can understand FFK and the rest being interrogated incessantly but I don't understand this Reuben's case o!

  31. Are you guys dumb or what? They gave him money for election campaign and he used it for that purpose. He doesn't have any money to return. Please leave him alone. Oppression destroy your opponents is now what they call fighting corruption. It's only in this lawless country you will detain someone even after they've met their bail conditions and ignore court orders. This is a military regime.

  33. For no single friend or colleagues to bail Abati in the past weeks says alot about him as a person. Very stingy man. Chop alone die alone that's his situation now.
    Merry Christmas in advance in prison.
    Meanwhile Stella why don't you return back to bail your friend?

    1. Hungry mucheche! Keep looking for bail outs and hand+me-downs.
      Your desire for hand-me-downs also beclouded your sense of sight so much that you couldn't read the part where it states that his bail conditions were met but EFCC refused to let him go.

      Keep pushing for brown envelopes inugo?
