Immediate past Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mallam Bala Mohammed, has been detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Reports from Abuja say he was arrested on Monday night and was not allowed to return home.

A former senator from Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed served as the Minister of the FCT from 2010 to 2015 under former President Goodluck Jonathan.

As was reported last night by News Express, Jonathan erstwhile Spokesman Reuben Abati had been arrested earlier in the evening by EFCC and was equally detained.

A NAN report on the arrest noted: “An anti-corruption crackdown launched by the Muhammadu Buhari administration shortly after assuming office last year had seen dozens of the Jonathan administration officials and associates arrested for corruption.

“Alongside Mohammed, others in EFCC custody as at Monday night were Musiliu Obanikoro, a former minister of state for defence; Femi Fani-Kayode, a spokesperson for Mr. Jonathan’s re-election campaign last year, and Reuben Abati, the former president’s spokesperson while in office.”
