Sahara Reporters had last year accused Fatodu of his involvement in fronting for Femi Fani-Kayode in diverting money meant for Nigerian Armed Forces fighting Boko Haram.

The paper said, Fatodu used a UK briefcase company to help Fani-Kayode divert funds.

Sowore was said to be picked up at his Lagos home and transferred to the Area F, police station, Ikeja.
