Reuben Abati, former Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan
A Nigerian man identified as Ettu Mohammed, on Sunday, opened a fundraising campaign on Gofundme.com to help Reuben Abati, the embattled former Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan after he failed to meet his bail condition and escape EFCC detention following his arrest.
It is believed the man who opened the GoFundme account is doing it to mock Abati over his inability to refund the N50 million he allegedly illicitly collected from former Natioanl Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
According to PremiumTimes
, the man has asked Nigerians to “please save Reuben Abati from EFCC”
by donating generously. He said the former presidential spokesperson was influenced by “Aso Rock evil spirits” t
o collect N50 million from former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
“Reuben Abati the spokesman of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan is under lock and key for voluntarily collecting the sum of 50m Ngn from Sambo Dasuki,” Mr. Mohammed, a staunch supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari wrote on Gofundme.com, an online fundraising platform.
“We believe he must have been under the influence of Aso Rock evil spirit,” he added, asking for $108,000 in donations to Mr. Abati who recently wrote an article narrating how the Aso Rock was pervaded by evil spirits.
“We are begging Nigerians to save Reuben Abati from detention, Mr. Mohammed later told PREMIUM TIMES on phone.
“Two weeks ago, he said there were evil spirits in Aso Rock but he was running around for Goodluck Jonathan to return so that he could continue working on the same place infested by evil spirits.” he added.
Abati had said he did not keep record of how he disbursed N50 million he got from Dasuki. But he said he did not keep records of the disbursement when queried for evidence.
