BafarawaThe former Governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Bafarawa, has denied involvement in the 2.1 billion dollar arms deal scandal, saying he did not receive any money from the former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (Rtd)

A statement issued in Abuja by one of his aides, a former Special Adviser on Youths and Students Matters, during his term as Governor of Sokoto State, Mr Akibu Dalhatu, maintains that the former Governor had no deal with the former National Security Adviser.

Mr Dalhatu, who in the statement said he had visited Bafarawa at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), claimed that his boss was not arrested at home or anywhere else as has been reported in a section of the media.

The statement added that the former governor went to the EFCC to honour an invitation made to him by the agency while he was abroad.

He had informed them through a letter by his lawyers that he was abroad and would honour their invitation upon his return, which he did.
