‘’Under cross-examination based on Obadina’s evidence-in-chief, prosecution counsel, Ibrahim Buba asked the defendant to identify the project for which payments were made to his company. Specifically, he was also asked to state if the payment was for the purpose of installing a power plant or any power project in Yobe State, to which he answered in the negative.

My lord, with reference to payments in the document that is written, particularly to the Almond project, no site was mentioned in all of the descriptions. No location was mentioned in any of the descriptions my lord,” the EFCC statement quotes him as saying
