Last week when being cross-examined by the defence counsel, Paul Usoro, at the Tribunal, the prosecution witness, Michael Wetkas, said Guaranty Trust Bank, GTB, told the investigation team that the transaction documents had been burnt.
“There were also police reports and affidavit which they (the GTB) swore to show that some documents were burnt,” Mr. Wetkas stated
Now according to Premium Times, documents obtained by them reveal that Bukola Saraki transferred a total of $3.47 million in 40 installments in four years with his credit card to the United States through GTB.
He is reported to have carried out the transactions through GTB between 2009 when he served as Kwara State governor, and 2012 when he served as the senator representing Kwara Central Senatorial District.
Prosecutors say the beneficiary accounts in the U.S. were also owned by Mr. Saraki.
Some of the senator’s companies, during the same period, also transferred thousands of dollars to the U.S. accounts. The companies are Carlisle Properties and West Gate Ltd.
The document, obtained exclusively by Premium Times, shows that Mr. Saraki, on August 26, 2009, transferred the $72,223.25 to the American Express Services Europe Limited no: 730580 for onward credit to the American Express Bank, New York card account No:374588216836009.
