$2.1bn arms deal scandal: EFCC arrest APC chieftain and Buhari's associate, Jafaru Isa
The EFCC probe into the $2.1 billion arms deal has led to the arrest of an APC chieftain and close associate of President Buhari, Jafaru Isa pictured above. According to Premium Times, Jafaru who was a military governor during the Abacha regime, was arrested at about 9pm at his Asokoro residence in Abuja yesterday January 6th. He is alleged to have received N100 million from the office of embattled former NSA Sambo Dasuki.
EFCC had written to him requesting that he comes forward to explain the reason for receiving the money. Jafaru then wrote to the antigraft agency, asking that his invitation be postponed because he lost a relative. Dissatisfied with his request, EFCC operatives went to his house yesterday night and arrested him.
