The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has urged former governor of the old Anambra State, Chief Jim Nwobodo, to explain how he shared the N500 million he allegedly collected from former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

The demand was made on the group’s behalf by its National President, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, and National Secretary, Okwu Nnabuike 

“We charge Nwobodo to let Nigerians know how he disbursed the N500m which he received from Dasuki. He should take a clue from Dasuki as well as Chief Tony Anenih, who have since disclosed how they shared money made available to them.

“Since Nwobodo said the money was meant for Jonathan’s mobilisation campaign in the South-East, he should let the world know how he disbursed the money – he should disclose the identities of all the South-East leaders and politicians who received money from him and how much he gave to each of them.

“If he pocketed the money, he should also let the world know. We also wish to remind him that President Muhammadu Buhari jailed him as a military head of state and so history is about to be made as the same President may jail him again – this time, he may bag a bigger sentence.”

Nwobodo has however denied collecting money from Dasuki saying that he only received N100 million from former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chairman, Adamu Mu’azu.

Meanwhile, the former governor has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), a move which has been described as an attempt to evade justice for his alleged part in the $2.1 billion arms deal fraud which was spearheaded by Dasuki.
