The Economic Financial Crime Commission, EFCC has revealed that there is still an on-going investigation on donations from the presidential campaign of former President, Goodluck Jonathan.

The Commission’s investigator, Shehu Shuaibu disclosed yesterday Tuesday 25th, in a money laundering case before the federal high court in Lagos.

Mr. Shuaibu told the court that there was a monetary inflow to bank account of Joint Trust Dimensions Limited, which is being tried for money laundering in connection with Jonathan’s campaign funds.

Amongst those linked as the fourth defendants to the case are Femi Fani-Kayode, Nenadi Usman, and Yusuf Danjuma.

Daily tells understands that the cash inflow into the company’s bank account was quoted as follows;

“N500m from Global Scan System Ltd on February 11, 2015; N300m from Diamond Bank on January  30, 2015.

Also, N250m from Castillo Torres BDC Ltd on February  11, 2015;

Finally for the cash inflow, N100m from Afrigate Energy Ltd, and N500m from Chief Emeka Ofor on March 13, 2015.”

Shuaibu is the third prosecution witness to testify in the case before the Federal High Court in Lagos.

He, however, expressed hope of the investigation revealing if the money paid into the account are truly donations.

Excerpts from the court:

The Lawyer asked Shaibu, “Since 2015, how many of those who made inflows into this account have you charged to court?”

Shuaibu replied: “It is not my duty to charge anyone, I am just an investigator.”

But when Orbih asked him, “Did you say you found that government money was stolen and paid into the account of Joint Trust Dimensions Limited?” Shuaibu said, “Yes.”

The case has been adjourned to 26th
