The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed why it arrested the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Deputy National Chairman, Uche Secondus.

Secondus, was picked up by men from the anti-graft agency on Wednesday, February 24, 2016.

According to Vanguard, an EFCC official revealed that the PDP chieftain’s arrest was in connection with an ongoing investigation involving Jide Omokore, owner of Atlantic Energy Concepts Limited.

Omokore is currently being investigated allegedly for some dubious crude oil deals worth billions of Naira he did with former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Madueke.

The EFCC source who spoke to Vanguard said “It was Omokore’s probe that exposed Secondus and we had to go after him. It was in the process of trying to trace where Omokore’s money went to that we found that exotic cars worth over N300 million were bought for distribution to PDP top shots.”

“Records show that he (Secondus) was the man who received the vehicles and we really want to know why he got the cars, what they were meant for and who the beneficiaries were,” the source said.

Uche Secondus was formerly the Acting Chairman of the PDP, until the emergence of  Ali Modu Sheriff. As the party chairman.
