Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Bagoro Local Government Area of Bauchi State, Andrew Adamu, has refunded N5 million out of the N12 million received.
Adamu was said to have received the said amount ahead of the 2015 presidential poll from the office of former petroleum minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
The PDP chieftain had earlier refunded N1 million to the anti-graft agency in order to avoid prosecution.
The former chairman reportedly made the refund via bank draft to the EFCC North East Zonal Office in Gombe State.
EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, who confirmed the payment, said embattled Adamu admitted to the zonal office of the commission during an interrogation that he signed and collected the said amount in the presence of Marcus Bulus Makama, a current member of Bauchi State House of Assembly and former caretaker chairman of the local government, Mrs. Hasanna Arkila, who signed as witnesses for the collection of the amount.
Adamu told EFCC operatives that the former Commissioner for Rural Development, Mr. Bukata Bayero Bukar, was the chairman of the stakeholders while Mr. Moses Hankali was the secretary.
