Metro EFCC Intensifies Investigation Into Halliburton Scandal



The EFCC has announced that it is stepping up investigations into the famous Halliburton bribery scandal.

Damian Dodo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, was interrogated for eight hours on the matter by EFCC operatives on Thursday, a statement by EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren said.

Reports say Mr. Dodo was being questioned for his role in the alleged $26 million bribery of a former minister and five other Nigerian lawyers.

The former minister involved is said to be former Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation Muhammed Adoke.

The EFCC alleges that Mr. Dodo received $4.5 million through his legal firm, DD Dodo and Co., from multinational companies connected to the Halliburton bribery scandal using the false cover of legal services.

EFCC also alleged that Mr. Dodo withdrew more than $2 million in cash “in flagrant violation of extant money laundering regulations".
