A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Bayelsa State, Mr. Miebi Bribena, has been reportedly arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over alleged contract scam at the Presidential Amnesty Program.
Bribena, was arrested early on Wednesday and was taken to EFCC headquarters Abuja, where he was quizzed for several hours.
Bribena, it was gathered, was being quizzed over allegations that he collected 95 per cent of a contract sum from the Amnesty office without executing the contract for which he was paid.
Reacting to the development, the Director, Media and Publicity, Sylva-Igiri Campaign Organisation, Chief Nathan Egba, said he had not been fully briefed on the matter.
He said, “If the arrest is true, it means that Muhammadu Buhari is a President who does not shield anybody from corruption, irrespective of whether you are an APC member or not.”
