Former Senior Special Assistant on Media to Bayelsa State Governor Henry Dickson – Abnedgo Don-Evarada was arrested on Monday in Port- Harcourt, Rivers State for offering a N10 million bribe to the EFCC’s Zonal Head in Port Harcourt.

According to the EFCC’s official statement;

Don-Evarada ran into trouble when he approached Salihu, over a case involving the Senior Special Assistant to the Bayelsa’s state governor on Millennium Development Goals, Apere Embelakpo and his wife, Fiene Beauty.

Embelakpo is being investigated for alleged diversion of N800 million being funds meant for the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) while his wife is being investigated for alleged money laundering, forgery and suspicious transactions to the tune of N200 million.

Don-Evarada offered the bribe ostensibly to compromise the EFCC investigation but his overture was turned down and was arrested.

He is being kept in the custody of the EFCC and would be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded, the EFCC stated.

    Istandbylooters group, wey them. As for me, let the witch hunt and wizard scout continued. I dont care if the anti corruption fight is selective or partial. As long as we see thieves being convicted and humilated, it’s all good. When the next candidate comes in in 2019, let them continue the trend and not be like some people that stole us blind and now crying like babies for omission. Why didn’t they do anything? Why didn’t they witch hunt? Instead dem bribe all yoruba kings, baale and hausa governors to continue to stay in power. They were so sure of their bribing that they didn’t tidy up their slacks.If they had won the election, no one would have seen or know all these weekly thieves we read about on blogs today. Shame on you guys!

    And I’m yet to see Farouk and Otedola behind bars. Didn’t they commit the same crime?

    @Bank, pls remind the next administration to witch hunt Otedola, Faruk, IBB, Amosu, Baba Iyabo, thiefnubu, ohakim, Amaechi,Atuku and the rest. That is what Nigerians want and you should be ashamed for not understanding my point and stand on this corruption issue. Unless, you are one of them or benefiting from it. Let the witch hunt continue till forever. Let whoever wins in 2019, whether Pdpigs or Apcriminals do something.
