TVCE [BENIN] – Former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BOT) chair Tony Anenih has written the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), explaining how he disbursed the N260 million paid into his bank account from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

EFCC believes the cash came from the allegedly misappropriated $2.1 billion arms funds.

The former PDP BoT chair wrote to the EFCC to state, among others, that he gave N63 million to a group coordinated by a former Special Assistant to former President Shehu Shagari (National Assembly Liaison), Alhaji Tanko Yakassai, for the 2015 presidential election.
