The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has stated that it will keep Nigerians updated on developments concerning Reuben Abati, former spokesman to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, who is currently in its custody.
The anti-graft agency said Abati had been cooperating with it.
EFCC also dismissed the reports that he was arrested, saying Abati honoured its invitation.
“Former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, on Monday, honoured an invitation by the EFCC at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja,” the commission wrote on Facebook.
“He is currently presently telling operatives of the commission his role in the alleged mismanagement of the nation’s resources through his office.
Others currently in the EFCC net are Bala Mohammed, the immediate past minister of the federal capital territory (FCT); Musiliu Obanikoro, former minister of state for defence; and Femi Fani-Kayode, former spokesman of Jonathan’s campaign.
The EFCC is alleging that they were beneficiaries of money misappropriated by Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser (NSA).
