Adegbe is currently being interrogated by the anti-graft agency in connection with an alleged N10bn given to chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party on the instructions of Jonathan.
A source, privy to the interrogation, confided in one of our correspondents, in Abuja, on Sunday, that the former ADC explained to his interrogators that he had cause to receive and pass over sealed parcels and documents from the Commander-In-Chief to individuals.
“He also stated that he was not in the habit of opening such parcels to view their contents before an onward transmission to whomsoever such parcels were addressed to. He said doing otherwise would be a betrayal of the confidence reposed in him.
“He also told them that as a serving military officer, he was bound by his oath of commission into the Nigerian Armed Forces and would not divulge official secrets which he swore to keep.”
All attempts to reach the EFCC spokesperson, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, on Sunday for comments on the fresh probe of Badeh and the update on the interrogation of Adegbe, proved abortive as his mobile indicated it was switched off.
