It was gathered that Bankole arrived at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja around 11am on Monday following an invitation by the commission over alleged hajj scam.

Bankole is said to have received funds as mobilization from the National Hajj Commission, and additional $900,000, for the airlift of pilgrims in 2019, but failed to execute the contract.

When contacted, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman, confirmed the arrest.

Bankole’s arrest comes months after the airline raised concern over the impact of the COVID pandemic on its operations.

KanyiDaily had also reported that the EFCC filed N2.9 billion fraud charges against former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, just a few hours after he declared his intention to contest for the 2023 presidency.
