Ex-APC Chieftain Tom Ikimi Arrested By EFCC

Tom Ikimi, a former chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and ex- minister of foreign affairs to late Nigerian dictator General Sanni Abacha has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over his role in the arms fund saga.

An EFCC source told Saharareporters that Ikimi had been grilled at their Abuja office over two days and allowed to go home each day after interrogation because of his health.

The source said Mr. Ikimi, who decamped from the APC to support former President Goodluck Jonathan bid for a second term, was involved in the $2.1billion arms funds scandal.
