The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Monday night, arrested a serving colonel in the Nigerian Army over his alleged involvement in the sharing of money from the office of the National Security Adviser under Colonel Sambo Dasuki.

The colonel (names withheld) served as a Special Assistant to the former National Security Adviser in charge of liaison with the Nigerian Army, according to Vanguard.

It was learnt that upon arrival of EFCC operatives at his residence in Apo, Abuja, the army officer locked himself up in one of the buildings while the EFCC operatives laid siege until about 10pm when he was moved to the EFCC headquarters for interrogation.

The colonel who had once been arrested on the issue but later released on bail was, Wednesday evening, taken to his house where a search was reportedly conducted and some vital documents were taken away by the operatives.

A senior official of the EFCC confirmed the arrest to Vanguard. “Yes, we have in our custody a serving army colonel who was a Special Assistant to the former NSA. His name featured in several deals and want to find out his role in the arms funds. He is still in our custody,” the source, who asked that his name should not be published said.
