Mr. Warimopei Dudafa, who served as Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs in the Goodluck Jonathan administration, was arrested on Monday, April 18, 2016.

Punch reports that Dudafa was arrested by men of the Department of State Services (DSS) at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The DSS subsequently handed him over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Reports say Dudafa fled the country when GEJ’s ex Aide-de-Camp (ADC), Col. Ojogbane Adegbe was arrested by the EFCC.

Adegbe and Dudafa were accused of disbursing N10bn to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) delegates.

A source who spoke to Punch said “We have arrested Dudafa. He arrived at the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos and was swiftly arrested by the DSS. He was subsequently flown down to Lagos and handed over to the EFCC.

“He is in our custody as we speak and our findings will be made public in due course.”

“The money was diverted from the CBN to bribe or settle the PDP delegates to adopt ex-President Goodluck Jonathan for a second term.

“Dudafa is expected to provide the list of beneficiaries of the largesse. All the beneficiaries will be unveiled by the EFCC and they have to refund public funds,” the source said.

You will recall that the Ijaw Youth Congress (IYC) warned against what it perceives as the government's attempt to arrest former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The group also accused the EFCC of subtly laying a foundation for the former President’s arrest.
