Ex-SGF, Babachir Lawal

The Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, has been arrested on Wednesday evening and is currently in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The Acting Head, Media & Publicity of the EFCC, Samin Amaddin confirmed it Channels Television last night.

Amaddin says the former SGF is cooperating with investigators and has been making useful statements.

His interview with the investigators will continue today.

Recall that the former SGF was recently sacked after he was indicted by a presidential panel that investigated misuse of funds meant for people displaced by Boko Haram.

He had earlier been indicted by the Senate. His arrest is coming a day after former President Olusegun Obasanjo accused Mr. Buhari of condoning corruption where persons close to him are involved.
