Mr Isiaka Olakanmi Gbadamosi who is said to be from Ibadan, Oyo State is reported to be one of those being investigated in the aftermath of the Sanusi years as the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Sources revealed that in recent times, there have been several allegations flying around on the probability of an existing account in the apex bank from which the activities of some notorious sects and organisations are being funded.
Though nothing is confirmed or denied yet on this issue, the latest development we gathered has given the Federal Government and the new Governor the required impetus to dig further.
Our source revealed that Mr Gbadamosi was caught unaware in the web of this investigations as he was only recently moved along with six directors in a major shake up ordered by Mr Godwin Emefiele, this move was made on June 23, along with the rearrangement of the portfolios of his deputies.
The investigations, we gathered, was very discreet and if the preliminary reports are anything to go by, Mr Gbadamosi might soon be summoned to explain how he came about this huge figure in his account.
“Even if the man had never touched a kobo from his salaries and allowances since he came on board in CBN in October 1999, he will find it extremely difficult to explain this figure. N7B is not the kind of money small boys play around with, we believe this is not even the end of the matter” a dependable source told us last week.
First Weekly exclusively gathered that this is one story that is being guided carefully until a final report is arrived at.
“We won’t want an innocent man crucified, so we are being careful, the man is still innocent until otherwise proven,” this was a response we got from a source in the bank, who pleaded anonymity.
