Nairaland Was Source Of APC Information On Asari Arms Deal by Eldavido1: 3:56pm On Oct 09, 2014
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Asari Dokubo’s
denial carries no weight until the Federal Government comes clean
on the identity of Nigerians aboard the plane carrying the $9.3
million dollars impounded by the South African Government.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by its National Publicity
Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said its reaction followed
a story published by www.africaneagle.com and
www.nairaland.com saying Asari Dokubo was one of the Nigerians
aboard the jet that carried the money to South Africa.
”To the best of our knowledge, that report has not been denied over
24 hours later. We therefore contend that Asari Dokubo’s denial of
his involvement carries no weight until the government, which has
claimed ownership of the funds, tells Nigerians who the two
Nigerian citizens- who were in the plane with an Israeli – are.
”We have no business with Asari Dokubo. He can blab all he likes.
We have no reason to disbelieve a widely-circulated published
report that named him as one of those on the plane. If he now says
he was not on the plane, let the government come out and tell
Nigerians who and who were on it, it said.
APC wondered why the government has refused, for over three
weeks now, to identify the Nigerians who flew on the plane that
ferried the money
to South Africa, especially after the Israeli who was also on the
plane has been named.
”Identifying the Nigerians will help to unravel the circumstances
surrounding the whole scandal. It will be interesting to know if the
Nigerians are security officials, officials from the office of the NSA
who issued the end-user certificate for the transaction or ordinary
Nigerians. It will be interesting to know their relationship with the
government that qualified them to fly such a huge amount of money
to another country without declaring it. It will be interesting to know
if they are arms contractors.
”We hope the Jonathan Administration will end its deafening silence
on the issue immediately and come clean on the whole scandal,” the
party said.

Even though I don’t believe that there was any intention to purchase arms from South Africa and the $9.3m scandal was a money laundering operation gone bad, can someone please remind Lia Mohammed that there are some elite Nigerian forces that ‎engage in clandestine operations such as intelligence gathering and espionage in foreign countries? According to military law, anyone who reveals the identity of a covert agent to a third party can get up to 10 years in prison. The identity of such officers is classified because any breach or exposure could put them and their family in harm’s way.

Let’s not forget that these men and women work day and night, infiltrate enemy camps, engage in illegal arms trade, economic sabotage and negotiations in hostile territories for the benefit of our country. These distinguished men and women work for the Government to support foreign policy that will benefit this country. So it will be unwise and perhaps irresponsible if Nigerian or South African Government release the names of such persons to the media.

This is not the time to play politics, the job of Government is too complex to be imagined. APC should please shield their sword on this topic and let this sleeping dog lie hence their investigation will cause more harm than good to this great nation.
