Nigerians Reacts As EFCC Arrests Atiku’s Campaign Deputy DG After Releasing His Son-In-Law

Nigerians Reacts As EFCC Arrests Atiku's Campaign Deputy DG After Releasing His Son-In-Law 1

The Deputy Director General (Admin) of Atiku Campaign Organization, Barr. Tanimu Turaki (SAN) has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

This is coming after it was learnt that the commission has released Babalele Abdullahi, son in-law to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just-concluded presidential election, Atiku Abubakar.

Babalele, who is also the finance director of a group of companies owned by Atiku, was arrested last Saturday by operatives of the anti-graft agency after a search conducted at both his office and home in Abuja.

However, it was gathered that while Atiku’s son-in-law was released, his Campaign Deputy DG was arrested and detained at the Idiagbon House, Wuse office of the commission.

Taminu Turaki was arrested by the antigraft-agency on Monday.

The arrests are believed to be part of efforts at dissuading Atiku from pursuing legal action against the alleged rigging of the presidential election by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that saw him lost to the incumbent President Muhamadu Buhari.

Moments after the news broke, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to air their displeasures on the development. See some of the reactions below:
