Prof. Charles Soludo arrested by the EFCC in Abuja

Former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Prof Charles Soludo, was Thursday arrested  by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC).

He was picked up from his Abuja residence, a source in EFCC confirmed to Vanguard.

Vanguard gathered that Soludo’s arrest was in connection with the controversial contract he awarded for the printing of polymer currency notes to an Australian firm while he was governor of the CBN between 2006 and 2008.

It was not clear as at the time of filing this report if the operatives would release the former Anambra State Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate.
