The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), arrested Mr. Uyiekpen Giwa-Osagie, one of the lawyers to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
According to Omokri, a team of about 20 operatives of the financial crimes agency stormed Giwa-Osagie’s office at 15 Military Street, Onikan in Lagos at noon and searched his office, detaining him there till 9.30 p.m when he was eventually taken into custody.
Omokri said the EFCC officials did not specify Giwa-Osagie’s offense even as no one was allowed access to him.
The EFCC’s spokesman, Mr. Tony Orilade, could not confirm the arrest last night as he said he was unable to reach the appropriate officer in the commission’s Lagos office.
