From the N19bn that an EFCC’s report claims it was stolen from the refund sums, the Central Bank paid into Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF’s account for onward transmission to the 36 states being reimbursement of the over-deduction on the Paris Club loan from 1995 to 2002, about N3.5bn out of the stolen N19bn was traced to Saraki and several persons close to him.

Information circulating said Saraki’s aides and associates have received letter of invitation from the anti-graft agency. Those invited include, his Deputy Chief of Staff, Gbenga Makanjuola, Obiora Amobi, Oladapo Joseph Idowu, Mr. Kolawole Shittu, the Relationship Manager to Saraki in Access Bank, Kathleen Erhimu and ex-MD of the Saraki’s family’s bank, which went under, defunct Societe Generale Bank, Mr. Robert Mbonu.

In the EFCC’s report, Mbonu’s company, Melrose General Services, was accused of fronting for Saraki, and was a beneficiary of N3.5bn under the guise of consultancy fees while other companies shared about N15.5bn.
