THE EFCC ARREST THREE EX-GOVERNORS
The EFCC has arrested three ex-governors in Nigeria. The said governors are those Ogun, Oyo and Nasarawa states.
Former Ogun state governor Olugbenga Daniel, Adebayo Alao-Akala of Oyo state and Aliyu Akwe Doma of Nasarawa state were arrested Thursday, EFCC spokesman Femi Babafemi said.
During their time in office, the men are alleged to have abused state contracts and diverted government money for their personal use.
Mr Babafemi said Mr Daniel is accused of defrauding the state of $387m. He said Mr Alao-Akala and Mr Doma each face $167m and $120m fraud allegations. All three men are members of the ruling party.
I hope something comes out of these and not one there normal arrest that ends to nothing.
But wait.....are they the only ex-governors that are supposed to be tried?
