The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Ebun Olu-Adegboruwa over allegations of fraud.

According to Daily Post, Olu-Adegboruwa is the legal counsel to ex militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, aka Tompolo.

Sahara Reporters say the lawyer was arrested for collecting money under false pretence.

Olu-Adegboruwa is accused of renting a property that has been forfeited without authorisation.

He allegedly rented a property located at House 105 NICON Town Estate, Lekki- Lagos state, to Shelf Drilling Nigeria Limited for N61, 631,944.65, reports say.

The lawyer was said to have received payment for the property and disbursed to others.

In January 2016, Olu-Adegboruwa said President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption seems more like a distraction than achievement.

He also file a case against Buhari on June 22, 2015, at the Federal High Court in Lagos, asking the court to compel him (Buhari) to appoint ministers or cease to be President.

Olu-Adegboruwa  also sued the former acting chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Amina Bala Zakari, claiming that her continued stay in office was a “constitutional aberration.”

He also accused President Buhari of humiliating Judges, due to his comments on Nnamdi kanu during the presidential media chat.
