Officers of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) invaded the Kaduna State Urban Planning Development Agency (KASUPDA) offices on Monday and arrested the Director-General, Malam Ismail Umaru Dikko.
KASUPDA has gained the reputation of Kaduna’s most feared agency due to its demolition of properties across the state.
Its boss, Dikko, was a Special Assistant to Governor Nasir El-Rufai before he was elevated to head the agency in 2019.
Daily Trust gathered that the DG was in a meeting with his staff when officials of the EFCC took over the office premises a few minutes after 10 am.
Eyewitnesses said there was some commotion before the DG entered a black Hilux Toyota vehicle of the EFCC.
Sources said two EFCC officials in a suit, with two police officers with rifles, had accompanied the KASUPDA boss into the vehicle.
