When news broke that The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Emeka Mba, the Director General of the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC), he was immediately linked to on-going #DasukiGate arms deal investigations.
However, multiple media reports now have it that the DG was picked up in Abuja on Monday, January 11, 2016 over an alleged N15 billion fraud.
Those familiar with the investigation say the EFCC had been investigating the NBC in the past one month. It’s also on records that some detectives of the EFCC stormed the headquarters of the NBC about a week ago, going through computers and files in the Finance and Account departments.
According to The Sun, ‘During the operation, some key Accounts staff where taken away. Sources said the arrested officials made confessional statements to the EFCC implicating Mr. Mba and some top officials of the NBC. When contacted, the EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, said he was on an official assignment in Lagos and had not been briefed’.
