EFCC Arrests Former Osun Deputy Governor Omisore
Former Osun state deputy governor Senator Iyiola Omisore was declared wanted in May 2016 by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, for receiving N700 million from the office of the former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki.
Omisore, a former senator, was arrested on Sunday morning in Abuja.
Dasuki is currently being prosecuted for allegedly mismanaging about $2.1 billion meant for purchase of arms for the military.
The EFCC in March declared Omisore wanted for his alleged roles in the scandal.
In response, Mr. Omisore, who was the Peoples Democratic Party candidate in the last Osun governorship election, threatened to sue the anti-graft agency for N500 million damages for defamation.
