Breaking:EFCC arrests former SGF Babachir
The Head of the Enlightenment Unit of the EFCC, Sammin Amadin confirmed the arrest last night, noting that Babachir was still in custody and would be held throughout the night until he completed his statements to investigators.
He also said Babachir was held in connection to investigation over his handling of funds related to the Northeast development initiatives, while he was Secretary of the Federal Government.
It was gathered that Babachir arrived the headquarters of the EFCC as early as 11 am yesterday.
The former SGF was later suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari. A panel set up by the President headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo indicted Babachir and recommended his sack.
President Buhari terminated the appointment of Babachir and the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayo Oke on October 30, 2017.
