‘Friends’ spent N100m on thanksgiving for Badeh’s N15m house – Witness

A prosecution witness, Mr. Joseph Okpetu, said before a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday that a sum of  N100m was spent on “thanksgiving” projects to mark the completion of a house belonging to a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh (retd.).

The house, which the witness said was worth N15m as of the time it was completed in 2012, was built in Badeh’s village, Vimtim, in Mubi Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

The witness said his companies – Havco Nigeria Limited and Kunychun Drilling Service and Vim Plast Nigeria Limited – were jointly and singly engaged to build the house in Vimtim and another N150m worth of mansion in Yola for Badeh.

He said on Thursday that the N100m for the thanksgiving projects was provided by a group called “Mafosamafosa,” described as a “Committee of Friends of Badeh.”
