Ex-head of State, Yakubu Gowon, has vehemently denied claims that he stole ‘half of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
It would be recalled that a UK Parliamentarian, Tom Tugendhat accused General Yakubu Gowon of stealing half of Nigeria’s Central bank during a debate on the Lekki Toll Gate Shooting.
However, speaking to BBC in an interview, General Gowon rubbished the allegation and stressed that he served his country with diligence.
“What the MP said is rubbish. I don’t know where he got that rubbish from, I served Nigeria diligently and my records are there for all to see.
I did not want to speak on this issue because people that know me to know that what the MP said is not true”
