“Anybody that is involved in that blood money should be held responsible.”

Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume, the Senate Majority Leader, stated that former president Goodluck Jonathan should face trial if he instigated the sharing of $2.1billion given to Sambo Dasuki, the former national security adviser, for procurement of arms.

The Nation reports that Ndume expressed his opinion while speaking with journalists on Thursday, March 10, in Abuja.

The senator stressed that anybody who is involved in that blood money should be held responsible for the crime.

Ndume lamented that over 10,000 innocent people were slaughtered like chickens because the Nigerian army was not equipped and not well kitted.

“I am not defending President Jonathan but he approved that this money be used for procurement of arms. So if the law says he should be part of those that should be part of the accountability or those that should face justice, I think nobody should be spared.
“I really don’t want to make comment on that but anybody that is involved in that blood money should be held responsible.

“If the president approved that money in the name of buying arms while giving a directive that it should be shared among his cronies, then he should face the law.

“If anybody is supposed to buy arms and you gave them money to buy arms, as the president, after some time you should ask `where are the arms anyway.”
