Atiku is a Fresh Problem and
These are not the best of times for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested his lawyer, Uyiekpen Giwa-Osagie .
The lawyer was picked up by the EFCC operatives on the night of Monday, February 18, 2019 for allegedly laundering $2 million.
He was reportedly implicated by a Bureau De Change operator who identified him as the owner of the money. Giwa-Osagie , we gathered, had been undergoing interrogation in the custody of the anti-graft commission.
We learnt the commission’s operatives suspected the $2 million might had been budgeted for vote-buying or to compromise electoral officials.
A source said, “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.”
