Lai Mohammed who addressed state house correspondents on Friday, revealed that Atiku Abubakar will be questioned when he returns from the United States, over the collapse of Bank PHB.
Lai Mohammed who claimed that there are fresh evidences that Atiku benefitted from the slush funds that led to the collapse of the bank, added that in 2009, a memo was raised for the issuance and payment of N156 million to Atiku’s account.
The onus, he said, is on Atiku to exonerate himself.
“He should come home on time to answer these questions.” he added.
Lai Mohammed also said another memo was raised to confirm that the amount was raised from a “claimant management account.” The Minister of Information further disclosed that the government has proof of the account mandate, cheque and account statement showing Mr Abubakar as the signatory to the account that received the money.
“We want him to stay in the US for as long as he wants but he has to explain to Nigerians when he returns,” he said.
