Senator Shehu Sani has revealed that the N70m handed over to the Northern Senators Forum has been swallowed by monkeys in the farm of Senator Abdullahi Adamu.
Mr. Sani (APC, Kaduna) disclosed this to newsmen minutes after Adamu was removed as the chairman of Northern Senators forum.
Senator Adamu was accused of mismanaging N70 million belonging to the Northern Senators.
But according to Sani some monkeys swallowed the money.
He said, ““Abdullahi Adamu is a distinguished senator and an elder statesman. There are some things that some of my colleagues cannot say but I am not used to holding back what is the truth.
“When we resumed as senators, whenwe assumed office, senator Ahmed Lawan tendered the sum of 70 million naira to the 8th senate that is, that 70 million naira was monies gathered by northern senators from the 7th senate.
“So it was handed over to the 8th senators from northern Nigeria under the 8th senate.
“The rumours going round whether it is true but I believe most of the senators know is the fact there were allegations that some monkeys raided the farm house of some of the executives in northern senators forum and carted away some of these monies.
“I think this country is becoming a huge joke, first of all it was the rodent that drove away the president and we now have snakes consuming about N36 million, and now you have monkeys.”
