Chief of staff to Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, Alhaji Ahmed Yayari, was on Friday arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Gombe.

The head of operations of the EFCC Gombe zonal office, Johnson Babalola who confirmed the arrest, said the arrest was connected to probe into alleged misuse of the 2015 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign funds.

“Yes, we invited Yayari among others to our office. We are still investigating the matter.
