There is no iota of truth in the claim by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission that $1 million was found in cash at the residence of a former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshall Alex Badeh.

Rather, it has been alleged that the claim was part of a grand plot being hatched against the Adamawa State born General.
One of the aides of Badeh, who works in his residence, made the clarification on Sunday.

The aide said no money was ever picked up from Badeh’s house at any point in time by the EFCC, but that they were aware of attempts to plant some objects, including money, around him by unknown persons, ostensibly to implicate him.

Badeh has himself and through his lawyers repeatedly denied the report linking him with the discovery of $1m cash in his residence.
He said he does not have such money and could not have kept what he did not have for the EFCC to pick.

The aide said it was when nothing incriminating was found around Badeh’s tenure as CDS that the EFCC had to go back to his tenure as Chief of Air Staff, using one of his former aides to bring up issues against him.

According to the aide, Badeh could not have kept such a colossal amount of money in cash in his residence when he had all the opportunity to move it somewhere else.
He said Badeh has been surviving on charity following the blockage of his access to funds.
