Money Laundering : CCB Invites Keyamo Over Petition Against Atiku

The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has invited Festus Keyamo, spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, over a petition he sent requesting the investigation of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Keyamo, in the petition, accused Atiku of diverting public funds while he was Nigeria’s vice president through the purchase of special purpose vehicles.

The minister of state for labour and employment had given the bureau a 72-hour ultimatum to “arrest, invite, interrogate and prosecute” Atiku for the alleged offences.
