EFCC arrests Bankole

Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole was Sunday, arrested by  the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)  in Abuja.

Vanguard gathered that  EFCC operatives arrested him in his home in Asokoro, Sunday afternoon,  despite, the reported plan by Bankole to appear in the anti-graft office,  Monday(tomorrow).

According to impeccable sources, Bankole may face  a four-count charge.

It was gathered that Bankole’s security aides resisted moves by the EFCC operatives from effecting his arrest until the EFCC chairman, Farida Waziri pulled a call through to the Inspector General of Police , Hafiz Ringim and the SSS Director General asking them to withdraw their men.

The duo then ordered the withdrawal of their operatives, thus paving way for the arrest of the embattled Speaker by the anti-corruption  agency.
