The Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, EFCC has released Taminu Turaki who is the lead counsel in the PDP’s legal battle instituted to challenge the outcome of the 2019 presidential election.
The man who doubles as Atiku’s presidential campaign deputy DG, was arrested after the anti-graft agency invited him to sign a bail document for Abubakar’s son-in-law, Babalele Abdullahi, who had hitherto been arrested by the agency, The Cable reported.
On why Turaki was arrested, Atiku’s spokesman, Paul Ibe said, “He is the one coordinating the team of lawyers, so you should just use your tongue to count your teeth to understand why he has been arrested.”
However, The Cable confirmed that Turaki was grilled due to his involvement in a money laundering scandal of upto N10 million.
It was alleged that he laundered the said amount when he headed the committee on Boko Haram amnesty during his time as the minister of special duties under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
