A group of Senators visited some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftains who are currently in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The Senators were at the anti-graft agency’s office around 8:00 pm on Tuesday, November 1, 2016, to assure the PDP stalwarts of their support, reports say.
The lawmakers include: Senators Isah Hamma, Ali Wakili, Ali Ndume and Philips Aduda.
A source who spoke to Punch, said “The senators were more than five, but those are the names I can confirm. They got to the EFCC office around 8pm. They gave Obanikoro, Abati, Fani-Kayode and Muhammed the assurances of their support. The senators said they were happy to find the four men in high spirits. It was more of a solidarity visit.”
Some of the PDP chieftains currently in the custody of the EFCC are: ex minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, ex presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati and ex minister of state for defence, Musiliu Obanikoro.
They are under investigation for allegedly receiving various sums of money from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.
Dasuki is currently standing trial for allegedly diverting funds meant for the purchase of arms for the Arm to prosecute the war against Boko Haram.
