Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested the Director of Finance of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Nenadi Usman.
She was arrested on Thursday for allegedly receiving N2.5bn from the Central Bank of Nigeria and paying same into the accounts of six chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Goodluck Support Group (GSG).
The former Finance Minister had been on the radar of the EFCC for several weeks but she travelled out of the country on March 13, 2016 thereby stalling investigations.
