The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is currently questioning Atiku Abubakar‘s son-in-law, Abdullahi Babadele for alleged money laundering to the tune of €150m, PUNCH reports.
Acting spokesman for the EFCC, Tony Orilade confirmed this to PUNCH, saying; “Yes, Babalele is with us, but I don’t have details of his case now, but at the appropriate time, we shall speak.”
Babadele was reportedly arrested by EFCC operatives at his home on Saturday after being kept under constant surveillance for a while.
Babadele is the finance director of a group of companies belonging to Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate running under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
It is reported that he would soon be released on bail while the EFCC had secured a court order to keep Atiku’s lawyer Uyiekpen Giwa-Osagie in custody for a longer period.
Giwa-Osagie who was arrested on the 19th of February is said to be undergoing interrogation for allegedly laundering $4m.
