More revelations by  former Accounts Officer II, Ibrahim Idris Wambai have shown that the Office of ex-Vice President Namadi Sambo was on a monthly stipend of N20million from  the Office of the National Security Adviser(ONSA).

Several  presidential aides also  benefitted from slush funds from  the ONSA,according to Wambai,who singled out five firms which were used as platforms by some people to receive funds  from  the office.

Many prominent Nigerians and leaders  similarly drew huge funds from the office.

Records of all cash payments to  such individuals and organizations are still intact, he said in a Statement of Witness/Accused Person which was filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) in the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory.

The certified statement on oath  is  part of the Proof of Evidence for the trial of nine suspects  next week.

He said:  “In December 2014, I took cash of N4million to Col. Madaki(rtd) in his residence in Wuse II Abuja. I had made many cash payments to Doyin Okupe, Ahmad Idris (PA to ex-NSA), ADC to former First Lady Patience  Jonathan as payments for monthly operation allowances.

“The  documents showing evidence of the payments are in the office of Yazidu Ibrahim in cash payment files. The exact amounts paid and date of payments I cannot remember but are available in the files.

“The venue for the collection of the money was my office and the money was given to me from the cash in the strong room.
