Security officials apprehend Jonathan’s top aide Dudafa in Lagos

Sources at the EFCC told the media that Dudafa was apprehended and interrogated by the operatives of the State Security Service (SSS), before he was handed over to the EFCC on Monday.

“He has been on our wanted list for a long time and he evaded arrest on several occasions,” a top EFCC official, who asked not to be named, said. 

According to a source, Dudafa has been on the EFCC’s wanted list for his alleged involvement in the sharing of N10billion to delegates during the December 2014 presidential primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party.

It was learnt that Dudafa allegedly converted the money into US dollars, amounting to $47million, and distributed to delegates from the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory. 

After investigations, the anti-graft agency believes the fund was part of the alleged $2.1billion meant for the purchase of arms, which was allegedly distributed to politicians through the office of a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
