Falae Speaks Out - EFCC Never Asked Me To Return Money

Chief Olu Falae, Social Democratic Party National Chairman, on Sunday, dismissed reports that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, ordered him to refund the N100m he collected from Chief Tony Anenih the former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Falae was recently accused of benefitting from the $2.1bn funds meant for the procurement of arms for the military fighting insurgents in the north-east.
It will be recalled that while admitting that the said money was transferred to him, he said it was meant to mobilize voters for the PDP in the last election.
Subsequent reports have had it that he was asked by the EFCC to return the controversial funds.
But speaking with The Punch, Falae affirmed that no one ever asked him to return the money, which was alleged to have come from the embattled former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd).

Falae said, “The PDP gave me money and I gave the money to the SDP, which has confirmed receipt of the money. No one has asked me to return any money.”
He said, “I did not tell anyone that I was asked to return the money. The reports showed great bias towards me.”
