Atiku’s lawyer arrested for alleged money laundering – EFCC

Uyiekpen Giwa-Osagie, a lawyer for the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar  was arrested on monday night for allegedly laundering $2m by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

He was said to have been implicated by a bureau de change operator who identified him as the owner of the money.

It was gathered that the commission’s operatives suspected the $2m might had been budgeted for vote-buying or to compromise electoral officials and also a gathered from a source that, “We believe the money was earmarked for either campaign financing, vote-buying or to compromise electoral officials but investigations would show what the money was meant for, the sources and why it was routed outside regular banking channels.”

Timi Frank, a former deputy spokesman of the All Progressives Congress, said the arrest was done on the interest of APC  and President Muhammadu Buhari.

While the acting spokesperson for EFCC had refused to say anything about the arrest of the lawyer after so much promise of weeding out the reason behind the arrest from the relevant department in the commission.
