The anti-graft agency, EFCC has responded to wide media claims of the arrest of a close associate of the president implicated in the ongoing arms deal probe.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has explained why it arrested Jafaru Isa, a close associate of President Muhammadu Buhari.  According to Premium Times, Isa, a retired brigadier general, was invited last week to appear before the commission on Wednesday (yesterday) to clear the air on “some questionable receipts” from the former NSA.
 Rather than honouring the invitation, sources said, Mr. Isa wrote a letter to the EFCC through his lawyer, seeking a postponement of his appearance date on the grounds of death of a relative.
A top EFCC who spoke to newsmen said Isa had to be arrested because, ''He has been wasting our time, and we just have to pick him up for our investigation to continue''.
