Did Emir Sanusi Give Dasuki N40bn? Sanusi States His Side

The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has debunked rumours that he donated N40billion in cash to the Office of the National Security Adviser during his tenure as Central Bank of Nigeria governor.
Speaking with The Cable, the Emir said: “This is completely untrue. In the first place, I understand the laws of money laundering. And it is a criminal offence. The Central Bank is the chief regulator charged with ensuring that we put an end to money laundering. 
“This is partly why we started our cashless Nigeria project and why I started the BVN project. I would never authorise that amount of cash to be moved to the Office of the NSA or to anyone even if it was in their account.”

The former CBN governor further described the report that the EFCC is considering questioning him over the alleged disbursements as totally false.

He said, “I do not know where they are getting these strange stories. I was removed from the CBN in February 2014, and to the best of my knowledge, the EFCC is probing disbursements allegedly made in late 2014 and early 2015 before the general elections, if indeed they happened.”
