EFCC arrests ex-SGF Babachir Lawal

Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal has been arrested and detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over fraud allegations over contracts awarded to companies he owned to cut grass at IDP camps, among other alleged infractions.

EFCC acting spokesman, Samin Ammadin, confirmed the arrest and said that Lawal is detained in the Abuja headquarters of the EFCC and is providing useful information.

Babachir was removed by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2017 following several months after an uproar in the country that he diverted aid funds intended for the humanitarian crisis in the North-east Nigeria.
