EFCC Arrests Another Former Governor by vickylala239: 4:45pm On May 17, 2016
Former Kaduna governor arrested over Diezani campaign fund

– PDP chieftain in Kano is trying to meet bail conditions for Yero

Ex-governor Ramalan Yero
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested ex-governor of Kaduna state Alhaji Lamaran Yaro and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Kano state, Alhaji Salihu Sagir Takai.

Both Yero and Takai were arrested on May 16 in connection with the N23bn campaign fund of the embattled former oil minister Deizani Alison-Madueke.

Daily Trust reports that the duo spent the night at the EFCC zonal office in Kano.

The secretary of PDP in Kano, Alhaji Auwalu Ibrahim Danzabuwa was also arrested.

PDP chieftain in Kano, Alhaji Musa Iliyasu Kwankwaso, said they were trying to meet the bail conditions laid down by the anti-graft agency to free them.

Meanwhile, Kwankwaso criticized the EFCC’s action, adding that the commission was only rendering selective justice in its operations.

He said: “If the commission is serious about the fight against corruption, it should extend its operation to some APC members because they too shared campaign money during last general elections. This campaign fund is a tradition in Nigerian politics and all political parties did the same thing in 2015 election.

“On Monday, some operatives of the commission have stormed our party’s campaign office and conducted a search. They were accompanied by the party’s secretary Auwalu Ibrahim Danzabuwa to our office for the search. This is injustice being mated against PDP members.

Meanwhile, former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has also been invited for interrogation by the EFCC over allegations of money laundering and he is currently in the custody.
