The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission yesterday took into custody a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, over allegations of fraud.
Recall that Babachir was recently sacked by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration following his indictment by a panel setup to probe allegations of corruption against him.
Checks revealed that, the ex SGF was taken into custody by the anti-graft body early Wednesday morning shortly after he arrived the agency’s office.
The acting Spokesman for the EFCC, Mr. Samin Amaddin, confirmed Lawal’s arrest to the media yesterday.
