Badeh’s predecessors also diverted N558.2m monthly


A former of Finance and Accounts at the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), Air Commodore Salisu Abdullahi Yushau yesterday 24th, that former Chiefs of Air Staff who served before Badeh came into office, were in the practice of diverting N558.2 from the salary of the Air force.

Yushau said this while testifying before a Federal High Court in Abuja at the continued trial of the immediate past Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, who is alleged to have siphoned N3.9 billion from account of the force in 2013.

“The practice of setting aside the N558.2 million was there, even before I was appointed as the Director of Finance in 2010,” he told the court.

Yushua stated that the system was in place when he served under former Air Chief Marshal M.D. Umar from October 2010 to October 2012. Umar is presently under investigation. He added that he briefed Badeh about how his predecessors diverted the said amount monthly when he assumed office and he decided to continue the practice.

Yushua who was cross-examined by Badeh’s lawyer, Akin Olujumi, said: “I gave the Chief the complete brief of the financial position of the Nigerian Air Force when he was appointed. From then he took control of the expenditure of the balance of N558.2 million which we monthly deducted from the salary account.”. Badeh’s trial continues on 8th.
