$2.1bn arms deal: EFCC operative arrested for collecting N45m bribe from indicted military officers

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested one of its operatives, Abdulrahman Mohammed Biu, a Deputy Detective Superintendent for allegedly collecting $150,000 (about N45 million) from seven yet to be named military officers currently under investigation for their involvement in the $2.1 billion arms procurement fraud.

A statement issued by EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, said Abdulrahman collected the money from the indicted military officers with a promise to give them soft landing to escape probe.

The statement said:
“An operative of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrahman Mohammed Biu, a Deputy Detective Superintendent, (DDS) has been arrested for offences bordering on extortion, influence peddling and impersonation. The officer was arrested on Monday following intelligence report alleging that he extorted a whopping sum of $150,000 from some military officers on the pretext that he would help give them a soft landing in the ongoing investigation into the arms deal scandal. Upon his arrest, a search was executed on his residence in Abuja where the following items were recovered: $20,000 cash, N500, 000 cash, two police uniforms bearing his name with the ranks of Deputy Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent, Police warrant card No: 27/2014 with the rank of DSP allegedly obtained from Kano Constabulary office, documents relating to military arms investigation and account information of several senior military officers. A search of his car parked in the premises yielded the following items: unbranded pistol with a magazine and 10 live ammunitions. His modus operandi includes dropping the names of ranking officers of the commission, claiming he was acting on their behalf. A paper containing seven of such names was recovered in his house. The suspect has made useful statement, while investigation continues.”.

Please does anyone know EFCC website? I have a case to report. I want to know if one have to make payments before your case is attended to? Because I don't know any influential person in Nigeria. Thank you.

Goes to show how corruption has eaten deep into the fabric of Zoogeria, For the zoo to be free of corruption, every animal there including the Zoo keepers need to be gassed and new breed introduced! Otherwise, the Chief Zoo manager Zoouari is wasting his time.

Which certain people have they been witch-hunting? If you mean the criminals who have been investigated and found to have received questionable payments from conniving last government? Well hell yeah!!! They need to be witch-hunted and witch-prosecuted.
The only reason you would have any issues with what is going on is if you are the kind of people that are currently being investigated and prosecuted.
