Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday rearrested former Imo State Governor Achike Udenwa, reports Sahara Reporters
He was rearrested in connection with an alleged campaign scandal committed during the 2015 presidential election.
Udenwa, as a State coordinator for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign organization in Imo State, was said to have collected the sum of N350m from the former senator representing Kaduna South and Director of Finance for the PDP presidential campaign organization, Nenadi Usman.

The commission had on May 4 arrested Udenwa over the allegation.
News 24 had reported that the former governor had in his statement to the commission admitted receiving the money.
Udenwa was granted administrative bail by the commission on the condition that he reports himself to the commission at an appointed time.
But while enjoying his administrative bail, Udenwa chose to deliberately skip reporting, thereby compelling the EFCC to revoke his administrative bail pending his arraignment in court.
He is currently being detained in the commission's office in Abuja.
