Why We Have Not Arrested Jonathan – EFCC


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), yesterday, explained why it has not arrested former President Goodluck Jonathan despite being at the helm of affairs when the former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki  (retd) allegedly disbursed over $2.1 billion meant for arms purchase to various individuals.

EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, who spoke with online news publishers in Lagos, said that no document has been traced to Jonathan indicting him on approval of disbursement of money for any purpose other than arms purchase.

“All approvals by former president Jonathan did not mention that it was for political purposes,” Magu said.

“All the memos approved by him were for the purchase of arms,” he said.
