The four persons have been reporting at the EFCC office for the past two months in line with the procedure for their investigation.

Inside sources at the EFCC said when they went to report this on Thursday, May 31, 2018, at the EFCC office, they were detained as they would be arraigned in court on Friday, June 1, 2018.

“The case is coming up tomorrow so I can confirm to you that the former governor is here with us and he will be arraigned at the courts with the three others,’ said a source at the EFCC who does not want to be named.

Yero is under investigation for the role he played in the disbursement of the N750 million PDP campaign fund before the 2015 general election.

Kamaludeen Gebi, the Kaduna zonal spokesman of the EFCC, could not be reached as at the time of filing this report.

The former governor and the trio were interrogated last week and made to sign some documents as part of the procedure for being under investigation but were allowed to go home after that.
They were held back today due to the case coming up at the court on Friday.
