JUST IN | Reuben Abati, Former Spokesperson to ex-President Jonathan Arrested by EFCC

Former presidential spokesperson to Nigeria’s former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reuben Abati, has been arrested.

Premium Times reports that Abati was arrested on Monday and is expected to spend at least Monday night at the office of the anti-graft agency, EFCC.

Abati is being questioned for allegedly receiving some money from former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, EFCC sources told Premium Times.

Dasuki is currently being tried by the EFCC for his management of arms funds under him , in what is now known as #Dasukigate.

With Abati’s arrest, at least three former aides of Mr. Jonathan are now currently in EFCC custody.

A former Minister of State for Defence and High Commissioner to Ghana, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, is still with the EFCC since last week Monday when he voluntarily surrendered himself after staying months away from the country.

Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Jonathan campaign spokesperson, was arrested on Friday and is still being detained by the commission.

More to come.
