EFCC arrests APC chieftain Jafaru Isa

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), yesterday night, arrested a former military Governor of Kaduna State and APC chieftain, Brig-Gen. Lawal Jafaru Isa (retd) at his Abuja residence, becoming the first APC chieftain to be arrested over the alleged diversion of $2.1 billion meant for arms purchase by officials of the immediate-past administration.

 Isa is a close friend of the embattled former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd). Investigators believe the retired soldier received over N100million from Col. Dasuki.

It was reported that Isa was invited last week to appear before the commission yesterday to clear the air on “some questionable receipts” from the former NSA. Rather than honoring the invitation, sources said, Gen. Isa wrote a letter to the EFCC through his lawyer, seeking a postponement of his appearance date on the grounds of death of a relative.

Apparently dissatisfied with his excuse, the EFCC however arrested him to clarify the “questionable receipts”.
