The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested a former Principal Private Secretary, to former President Goodluck Jonathan.
A former Principal Private Secretary to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Hassan Tukur, has been arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday evening in his Abuja residence.
According to Premium Times, it was not clear why he was arrested, but the anti-graft agency has been investigating how government monies were stolen and diverted for political purposes during the administration of Goodluck Jonathan.
The spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, when contacted, requested the question be sent via text message due to poor telephone signal. He did not revert after the message was sent to him.
However, a competent source in the know of what transpired, confirmed that Tukur who was one of the most powerful persons during the Jonathan’s administration, was ‘picked last night and is still with the EFCC’.
