A  two-page notice of discontinuance   which was filed  at the Federal High Court Abuja on the 29th of August ,2012 said “the intervener/applicant hereby discontinues this  suit  against all the respondents herein”.Chibuike Achigbu was  the Intervener /applicant  who  earlier sought to claim  the money .

But the affidavit  earlier deposed to had also revealed that the fund was a donation aimed at supporting PDP candidates in past  elections .Andy Uba’s name was also mentioned as the man who handed over the money to EFCC’s Director of Operation at the time , Ibrahim Lamorde .He  is now the Chairman of the antigraft agency.

The attempt to claim the money has led to calls for a probe into the alleged bribery case.
