EFCC detains Shuaibu Salisu, others over $2bn arms deal
Some of the officials taken into custody are the former Minister of State for Finance, Ambassador Bashir Yuguda and a former Director of Finance in the Office of the National Security Adviser, Shuaibu Salisu. The former minister, who worked under Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, was still being questioned by operatives of the EFCC in Abuja as at last night.
Shuaibu Salisu was said to have been arrested and detained for a while over various payments that he allegedly made.
A source in the EFCC confirmed that the sons of many top-ranking PDP officials were also found to have received various sums of money under the guise of supplying weapons for the armed forces but did not deliver.
