Atiku in fresh trouble as powerful APC chieftain sues PDP flagbearer, shares damaging documents
Legit.ng earlier reported that Festus Keyamo, a serving minister and spokesperson of APC PCC, has asked the federal high court in Abuja to compel the EFCC, ICPC and CCB to prosecute Atiku Abubakar.
Abubakar, who is the PDP presidential flagbearer in the 2023 election, was accused of money laundering when he was the vice president of Nigeria between 1999 and 2007.
Keyamo, in a letter to chairmen of the anti-graft agencies, asked them to arrest Atiku within 72 hours but the commissions failed to arrest the PDP candidate as he has requested.
