The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested a former governor of Abia State, Senator Theodore Orji at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
His arrest was confirmed by EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren.
He is being interrogated alongside his son, Chinedu, who is the Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly.
Senator Orji and his sons, Chinedu and Ogbonna, are under investigation by the EFCC for alleged misappropriation of public funds and money laundering to the tune of N551 billion.
The ex-governor was alleged to have embezzled the N500 million monthly security vote he received for eight years as governor of Abia state between 2007 and 2015.
