President Donald Trump’s former political strategist, Steve Bannon and three other men were on Thursday arrested.
Naija News reports that Bannon was reportedly arrested for his role in an online fundraising scheme.
The NBC reports that Bannon was charged with fraud by a Manhattan attorney for defrauding people of millions of dollars.
According to a statement by acting US Attorney, Audrey Strauss, Bannon was said to have capitalized on donors’ interest in building a border wall to raise millions of dollars later channelled to fund the “lavish lifestyle” of “We Build The Wall” founder and public face Brian Kolfage.
