Emefiele’s trail: Ex-SGF, Mustapha, says forged documents used to withdraw $6.2 million from CBN

Boss Mustapha

A former Secretary of the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, has hinted that the $6.2 million was withdrawn from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on February 8, 2023, using forged document.

Mustapha, who said he knew nothing about the money which was used to pay foreign election observers, said the document in question did not emanate from the office of the then President Muhammadu Buhari.

This was made known by Mustapha when he appeared on Tuesday, February 13, as a prosecution witness in the ongoing fraud trial of the immediate-past CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, before the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Maitama, Abuja.

Led in evidence by the prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), on Tuesday, Mustapha noted that neither the documents came from the president nor his office.

He also denied receiving any amount from the said money.
