A bullion van driver, Olaoluwa Omotoso, has confessed to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, of how he transported huge sum of money from the Ekiti State Airport in Akure in company of Governor Ayodele Fayose’s ally, Abiodun Agbele during the 2014 governorship election.

 

EFCC is currently investigating Fayose for allegedly receiving N1.219bn from the Office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA, for his campaign in 2014 governorship campaign, which is part of the arms fund allegedly diverted by former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd).

 

The commission had alleged that N4.7bn was paid into a bank account of Sylvan McNamara, a company in which the sons of a former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, are signatory to, while N1.219bn was allegedly flown into Akure airport on a private plane during the 2014 governorship election.

 

EFCC claimed Fayose received the money through his friend, Agbele; this the embattled governor has repeatedly denied, saying his campaign was funded by donors and Zenith Bank.

 

But Omotoso told the agency that he transported the N1.219bn Obanikoro allegedly flew into the state on June 17, 2014 in two separate trips, Punch reports.

 

He alleged that part of the money was taken to a bank in Alagbaka, Akure, on the instruction Agbele, while the remaining money was transported to a hotel, Spotless Hotel, in the state capital which is owned by Fayose and his wife, Feyisetan.

 

According to a source from the commission, “Omotoso explained that on June 17, 2014, he was given a directive to go to the Akure airport to convey some funds. He said he went to the airport twice to move the money. He said some of the money was taken to a bank while he, along with Agbele, moved the remaining cash to Spotless Hotel, Ado Ekiti.

 

“He said the money was moved in three vehicles, including one bullion van and two Toyota Hilux vans. The two Toyota Hilux vans had some soldiers inside for security, while Agbele was with him in the bullion van.

 

“He said he did not know exactly how much was conveyed. He explained that Agbele held the keys to the vault in the bullion van. On getting to Spotless Hotel at night, they offloaded the cash and Agbele entered the vehicle to search and ensure that no money was left behind. Agbele then returned the keys and Omotoso drove off.”
