Reports have it that EFCC operatives investigating the $2.1bn arms procurement scandal under the former President Goodluck Jonathan administration had traced N400m to the account of a serving army officer.
A source at the commission said the officer’s account is still being investigated.
It was also gathered that the commission would next week invite nine prominent northerners, who were mentioned in a letter which a former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Board of Trustees, Chief Tony Anenih, wrote to the anti-graft agency.
The EFCC, it was also gathered, plans to make a series of arrests in security circles very soon.
However, the source was silent on whether the security personnel had been picked up or not.
The EFCC had picked up a serving Colonel and a German citizen in connection with the ongoing investigation into arms procured under the Jonathan administration.
Sources said the duo were still being detained in connection with the training of 750 special forces in Belarus in 2015.
