A former governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Ramalan Yero, was on Wednesday detained at the Kaduna Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Detained alongside Yero, were the former Kaduna State Peoples Democratic Party’s Chairman, Abubakar Gaya- Haruna, former Secretary to the State Government, Hamza Ishaq and a former Minister, Nuhu Somo Wya.

The former governor was under investigation over his alleged role in the disbursement of N750m PDP campaign fund during the 2015 general elections.

Yero and the trio were interrogated last week and made to sign some documents as part of the procedure for being under investigation but were allowed to go home after that.

However, on Wednesday they were detained because they are to be arraigned on Thursday.

The former governor and the other three persons had been reporting to the EFCC office for the past months now.

They reportedly went to the anti-graft agency office as usual and were subsequently detained.

A source at the EFCC office confirmed that the former governor and the other three persons will be arraigned on Thursday.

“The case is coming up tomorrow so I can confirm to you that the former governor is here with us and he will be arraigned at the courts with the three others,’ the source said.
