The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has arrested four former governors: Danjuma Goje (Gombe), Gbenga Daniel (Ogun) and Adebayo Alao-Akala (Oyo) for their alleged involvement in money laundering and other financial crimes.

Nigerian antigraft body has accused them of misusing $674 million in the oil-rich West African nation. Femi Babafemi has told that Daniel is accused of making a fraud of worth $387 million. He further added that Alao-Akala and Doma each is alleged to face $167 million and $120 million fraud. All the governors own the membership of the ruling party. The comments of the former governors and the party spokesman could no be taken due to lack of access to them at the moment.

The Nigerian states receive large shares of the nation’s oil revenues that can prove tempting targets for misusage under Federal Law system of Nigeria.
