Two men, who allegedly helped Governor Ayo Fayose to launder part of the cash taken from the Office of the former National Security Officer has been arrested and detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to Vanguard, one of them, identified as Abiodun Agbele, was reportedly picked up at a location in Lagos while trying to doctor vital documents relating to some property he had bought for the embattled governor.

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the arrest. “It is true that we arrested some men who were fronting for governor. They are in our Lagos Office. That is all I can say for now,” Vanguard quoted Uwujaren to have said.

The newspaper also reported that some officials of a bank, which Governor Fayose claimed had helped him with funds to run his election, were also arrested by the anti-graft agency and moved to Abuja by the operatives of the commission.
