Chief of staff to Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, Alhaji Ahmed Yayari, was on Friday arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Gombe.
The arrest was confirmed by head of operations of the EFCC Gombe zonal office, Johnson Babalola.
Babalola said the arrest was connected to probe into alleged misuse of the 2015 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign funds.
Babalola said that the governor’s chief of staff was invited to confirm his alleged involvement in the disbursement and diversion of the campaign funds.
“Yes, we invited Yayari among others to our office. We are still investigating the matter.
“The anti-graft agency would prosecute anyone found wanting once investigations are concluded,” he confirmed in a statement to newsmen in the state.
