A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress and an ally of President Muhammad Buhari, Alhaji Jafaru Isa has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Isa’s arrest is part of the ongoing investigation into the $2.1 billion arms scandal involving former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd).

Isa, a former military administrator of Kaduna State is described as a close political associate of President Buhari, as well as a top chieftain of the APC.

His arrest makes him the first APC member arrested in connection to the arms scam.

EFCC sources say the retired general may have received over N100 million from Dasuki.
