One-time Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Dr. Haliru Bello Mohammed and his son, Abbah have become the latest individuals to be arrested over the $2.1billion arms deal for which former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) is now facing two different court trials.

Sources said while Abbah was picked up yesterday, his father was not taken into custody because he was on admission in hospital for an undisclosed ailment.

We gathered from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that the two me are most likely going to be dragged to court on Tuesday.

The senior Mohammed who at different times headed the Nigerian Customs Service and was Minister of Defence was implicated in the N31billion slush funds distributed to some PDP stalwarts for the 2015 election campaign by the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

A former Minister of State for Finance, Amb. Bashir Yuguda in his statement, admitted paying about N300 million into the account of BAM Properties, which was provided by Haliru Mohammed.

It was gathered that the slush funds in BAM Properties’ account had been traced to the ex-PDP National Chairman and his son.
