The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Chief Pius Anyim.
He allegedly collected N520 million from the embattled former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), on the eve of the 2015 presidential election.
Anyim was still being "interviewed" as at 9 p.m. on Friday and is expected to remain there till at least Saturday, a top official of the commission said.
Sources said that he was subsequently grilled by EFCC operatives about the management of ecological funds during his tenure as the SGF.
Anyim, who served as SGF under the previous administration of President Goodluck Jonathan, was invited by the EFCC headquarters in Abuja on Thursday and was still in anti-graft agency's custody well after mid-night.
The Abuja Centenary City Project is said to have cost over $18 billion of which Anyim was a major driver.
Uwijaren confirmed that Anyim was being questioned over the alleged "diversion of ecological funds meant for Kaduna State and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja". During this period, specifically from May 2012 to May 2015, the SGF Ecological Fund Account with the Central Bank of Nigeria received an inflow of N58, 146,983,677.85. Some of the organizations and individuals have no nexus at all with ecological issues.
It will be recalled that the House of Representatives had recently recommended the prosecution of Anyim over his involvement in the Centenary city project.
