When Gadzama asked Tahir how much he had so far paid out of the N67 million the EFCC asked him to refund from the N200 million, the witness said the anti-graft agency only asked him to refund N20 million. The lawyer then proceeded to show him the amount from the documented evidence.“N404 million was released for this project from this memo. I am only concerned with what was giving to me and this has been my argument with EFCC,” Tahir replied. The lawyer asked him what step did he take when he saw that N200 million was released to him from the N359 million. You told the court that N359 million was approved to you and you got N200 million.
