A coalition of civil society organizations have called on the federal government to probe and arrest the Ekiti state governor. The coalition said the governor must be arrested for his alleged role in the arms deal scandal.

The CSOs – a coalition of five anti-corruption organizations under the aegis of Corruption and Democracy Watchers in Nigeria – said the governor must first be impeached and then arrested.

In a communiqué released by the organizations in Lagos themed: “The Buhari Anti-Corruption Drive: An Assessment” said the arms deal scandal led to a huge loss of many innocent lives in Nigeria.

The chairman and the secretary of the organization Abdulmalik Shaba and Aisabo Tunde on the communiqué urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Department of State Security to commence investigation on Fayose.

The duo said the investigation on the governor must begin before impeachment, arrest or expiration of his tenure.

“We are particularly irked at the amazing revelations on the looting and criminal diversion of the $2.1 billion arms procurement fund under the office of the former National Security Adviser (ONSA), headed by Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) (otherwise known as Dasukigate) voted for the purchase of arms and ammunition to battle Boko Haram insurgency in Northeast Nigeria,” the groups said.

“It expressed concern at the slow pace of investigation and prosecution of the suspects involved in the Dasukigate and other corruption acts, by the judiciary, and urged security agents and the judiciary to expedite action on the pending cases in order to dish out justice to families affected by the insurgency.

“And that Nigerians and international community should enlist in the campaign of prevailing on Governor Ayodele Fayose to do the needful by coughing out the looted arms fund.

“Failure in this regard would imply the failing in assuaging the pains of humanity which suffered as a consequence of his criminal and wicked act on defenseless and vulnerable Nigerians,” the CSOs said.
