The EFCC arrested and quizzed Usman, who also was the campaign director of the Goodluck Jonathan presidential campaign, for allegedly receiving N2.5bfrom the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

Reports also said the campaign director was the one who disbursed all the funds used during GEJ's campaign.

Punch reports that a source with the anti-graft agency said “Udenwa was invited on Tuesday and was quizzed for several hours. He was, however, released around 9pm and will cooperate fully with us.”

Reports say Nenadi Usman has returned N23mto the coffers of the Federal Government after her arrest.
