Just In: Babachir Lawal Arrested By EFCC
A former Secretary to Govt of the Federation, Babachir Lawal has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Mr. Lawal was arrested Wednesday, Channels Television reported.
Mr. Lawal was sacked last year 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.
Mr. Obasanjo said in a statement that the president had failed woefully, and urged him not to seek re-election.
