TVC N. It has been reported that, a former presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, has been arrested for allegedly receiving some money from former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki. Abati, who was spokesperson to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan was arrested today, Monday (24th of October 2016) and is expected to spend at least the night at the office of the anti-graft agency, EFCC.
Recall, Dasuki is currently being tried by the EFCC for his management of arms funds under him , in what is now known as #Dasukigate.
While Abati’s arrest makes it at least three former aides of Mr. Jonathan who are currently in EFCC custody.
A former minister of state for defence is still with the commission since last week Monday when he voluntarily surrendered himself after staying months away from the country; while Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Jonathan campaign spokesperson, was arrested on Friday and is still with the commission.
