The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Sunday arrested Iyiola Omisore, a former deputy governor of Osun State.
Hours after online media, Sahara Reporters, broke the news of Mr. Omisore’s arrest, a family friend of the politician confirmed it to PREMIUM TIMES.
Mr. Omisore, a former senator, was arrested on Sunday morning in Abuja, the source said.
The Osun politician’s arrest is believed to be related to allegations that he, through firms linked to him, received N1.3 billion from the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
Mr. Dasuki is currently being prosecuted for allegedly mismanaging about $2.1 billion meant for purchase of arms for the military.
