A prosecution witness in the trial of a former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Haliru Bello before Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Thursday, 18 March, 2021 narrated how he made payments to account of Bam Projects on the directives of a former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd).
Salisu told the court that he carried out the instruction, prepared payment mandate which he took to the NSA to append his signature and then forwarded to the bank to effect payment.
The witness said he was not aware of any contract for which the payment of N300 million was made.
During cross examination by Solomon Umoh SAN, Sanusi explained that the Instructions to make payment was given verbally by the former NSA while the details of account and amount were written.
Haliru Bello, his son, Abba Mohammed and their company, Bam Projects and Properties Limited are being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for allegedly receiving the sum of N300 million from the office of the former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.). They are facing a four-count charge bordering on money laundering.
