A former chieftain of the All Progressives Congress [APC], Chief Tom Ikimi has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] over his role in the ongoing arms fund saga.
Chief Ikimi was also the ex- minister of foreign affairs under the late Nigerian dictator, General Sani Abacha.
An EFCC source disclosed 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.
It could be recalled that Mr. Ikimi had abandoned the APC over some power sharing which saw him left out of the party’s top positions after the APC national congress in 2015.
