Reuben Abati, the former media aide to former President

surety who is a Level 16 civil servant, according to Vanguard.
He was arrested by operatives of the anti-graft agency on
Monday, October 24, 2016.
According to Premium Times, the former presidential
spokesman has not been able to meet the anti-graft agency’s bail condition.
Reports also revealed that an EFCC source said “He will be
released when he meets his bail conditions.”
Abati was accused of collecting of N50m from the former
National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

disbursed the funds to some media practitioners.

The N50m which Abati collected has been linked to the money
which was meant for the purchase of arms for the Army, that Dasuki diverted.
