Planned Arrest: Presidency Under Pressure Over Saraki, Ohakim

10 October 2011

The presidency is under pressure from two former state governors, Bukola Saraki (Kwara) and Ikedi Ohakim (Imo), over  the bid of  the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to pick them up this week for alleged financial crimes.

At the same time, former governor of Gombe State Muhammadu Danjuma Goje, who had been declared wanted by the EFCC, arrived in Abuja last night, saying he was ready to face the anti-graft agency this morning.

The attorney-general  of the federation (AGF) and minister of justice, Mohammed Adoke, (SAN) was said to have approved the  prosecution  of Saraki and Ohakim  for alleged corrupt practices while in office. The rest are Aliyu Akwe Doma (Nasarawa), Gbenga Daniel (Ogun), Adebayo Alao-Akala and Goje. Some of them were arrested last Thursday and will likely be charged to court this morning.
