While giving analysis of how the controversial funds were shared, the State Chairman of NUT, Salihu Idris Toyin told the operatives of the EFCC that ” The sum of 12 million naira was paid into an account operated by me and others, the money was actually not supposed to come , when the cash hit the account, I withdrew it and gave it to SUBEB Officials, they gave us three million naira for free and we shared it among ourselves”

“We also received another nineteen million naira, I withdrew four million naira from it, I used one point five million naira for clearing and inter locking of our quarters, the remaining two point five million naira is still with me”

The operatives then asked the Embattled NUT Chairman, ” The Clearing and inter locking you did, do you have receipts for this transaction ” He answered “NO”
