The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) today arrested a former military governor of Kaduna State and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Jafaru Isa.

A Channels Television report quoted EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwajuren as saying that Mr Isa, who is believed to be an ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, was picked up at his residence in Abuja for questioning over the ongoing probe into the disbursement of funds from the office of the former National Security Adviser (NSA), retired Col. Sambo Dasuki, who is currently in detention in connection with the scandal.

“Mr Isa is the first chieftain of the APC to be arrested by the EFCC since the beginning of a probe into the alleged diversion of $2.1 billion meant for arms purchase by officials of the immediate-past administration,” the report said.

“The retired brigadier general had been invited last week by the anti-graft agency to clear the air on payments linked to him from the office of the former NSA,” it added.
