EFCC Arrests Buhari’s Special Adviser, Recovers $9 Million Cash
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and Office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA, have discovered $9 million cash at the residence of the sacked Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, retired Brig.-Gen. Paul Tarelah Boroh.
The discovery of the cash was made a few hours after his arrest by a combined team of EFCC and operatives of ONSA.
The Head, Media and Publicity of EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujiaren, confirmed the arrest and cash recovery.
A senior security agent said Boroh was picked up from his home in Gwarinpa, Abuja, on Monday.
He was reported to have been taken back to his residence at about 3 a.m. Tuesday by the security operatives who raided his house for hours and made the cash discovery of $9 million at his home.
He remains in the custody of the EFCC. “The former adviser was driven to his home in an unmarked car after his arrest. His home was searched for several hours and about $9 million cash was discovered in several safe boxes in several parts of the house,” the senior security agent stated. “The combined team of EFCC and the National Security Adviser operatives were very thorough with the search. Indeed, at a point, the operatives broke all the locks in the home including his wife’s closet. "The recovered cash has been deposited at the Office of the NSA.
Buhari sacked Boroh last week and announced Prof. Charles Dokubo as his replacement.
Failure is always a demoralizing and upsetting experience. You cannot always control whether difficult things happen to you in life but you can control, to a large extent, how you react to them.
Failure makes your mind trick you into believing things that aren't true. Unless you learn to respond to failures in psychologically adaptive ways, they will paralyze you, demotivate you, and limit your likelihood of success going forward.
The Ijaw Youth Council has dismissed the rumoured attack by military personnel on Alhaji #Asari#Dokubo , founder of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF). There were widespread rumours of Asari being killed in an alleged confrontation with soldiers on Saturday morning.
But in a statement by the spokesman for IYC, Eric Omare, on Saturday said the former militant warlord was in good health and there was never a confrontation between him and military men. IYC, an umbrella body for Ijaw youths, also called for the immediate withdrawal of troops from the region particularly the creeks of the Niger Delta following the recent ceasefire deal reached with militant youths and stakeholders in the region. The group stated that there was no reason for military deployment in the region, adding that such was already causing tension and fear among people in the region.
MAY 31: After several weeks of opposing the new government, the reality of #MuhammaduBuhari as #president might just have dawned on Ex- Niger #Delta#militant leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo.
Speaking during a chat with newsmen in #Owerri today, May 31, Asari Dokubo slammed Ex-president, #GoodluckJonathan for ignoring his advice and relinquishing his duties as president to #Buhari . According to #Dokubo , the recent 2015 general elections is “the most rigged #election Nigeria has ever experienced, as it was not free and fair”, Vanguard reports.
He said, “The figures were self-evident. The figures clearly showed the manipulations. The elections were not free and fair. Also, the stage was set to manipulate the elections.” He also noted that Boko Haram came into being after the leaders from the Northern section of the country (mostly the Northern Muslims), made the statement that they would make the society ungovernable and crisis laden for Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. #Naija#Nigeria#Politics#PDP#APC - Naij.com
