He was alleged to have offered the EFFC official the bribe in favour of the Senior Special Assistant to the Bayelsa’s state governor on Millennium Development Goals.
The suspect, Mr. Don-Evarada, was picked up on Monday, April 25, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital for allegedly offering the EFCC’s Zonal Head, Ishaq Salihu, a N10 million bribe.
He was alleged to have offered Salihu the bribe in favour of the Senior Special Assistant to the Bayelsa’s state governor on Millennium Development Goals, Apere Embelakpo and his wife, Fiene Beauty.
Embelakpo is being investigated for alleged diversion of N800 million meant for MDGs, while his wife is being investigated for alleged money laundering, forgery and suspicious transactions to the tune of N200 million.
Salihu was believed to have turned down the bribe and arrested the former aide of Dickson.
He is being kept in the custody of the EFCC and would be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded, officials said.
