The journalist is being questioned for allegedly receiving money from former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, a source in the EFCC said.

Mr. Dasuki is currently being tried by the EFCC for his management of arms funds under him , in what is now known as #Dasukigate.

Mr. Abati’s arrest makes it at least three former aides of Mr. Jonathan who are currently in EFCC custody.

A former minister of state for defence is still with the commission since last week Monday when he voluntarily surrendered himself after staying months away from the country; while Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Jonathan campaign spokesperson, was arrested on Friday and is still with the commission.
