Abuja - A source within the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed that former President Goodluck Jonathan may be arrested before May 29.
The source hinged the revelation on the level of investigations carried out on Jonathan-led administration by officials of the commission, noting that he may be arrested before President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration clocks its first year in office.
According to the source, the arrest of Azibaola Robert, the managing director of Kakatar engineering and construction company two weeks ago was a clear indication that “we are inching close to making former president Jonathan our guest,” describing Robert as the closest kinsman of the former president.

The official described as careless, the recent remarks made by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who berated the commission and described it as a “toothless bulldog”.
He revealed that both Robert and Atukpa were arrested in connection with the “ongoing investigations” into a $40 million oil pipeline security contract, which was issued from the Ministry of Petroleum, but was paid for by the office of the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Retired Col. Sambo Dasuki, who is also in detention.
