Ex-Principal Secretary to Jonathan, Hassan Tukur Arrested by EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested a former Principal Private Secretary, PPS, to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Hassan Tukur, Premium Times has reported.

Mr. Tukur was picked up by operatives of the commission on Monday evening in his Abuja residence.

He was one of the most powerful persons in the administration of Mr. Jonathan.

It was not clear why he was arrested, but the commission has been investigating how government monies were stolen and diverted for political purposes during the administration of Mr. Jonathan.
