SHOCKING!!! Great Tension As EFCC Goes After Obasanjo’s 2019 Presidential Candidate, Arrests And Detains High Ranking PDP Chieftain

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has waged war against the Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, by arresting his close Associate, who is a 2019 leading Gubernatorial aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bala Bello Tinka, over 2015 campaign funds.

A source who spoke on condition of anonymity to Tribune Newspaper, disclosed that Bala was invited by operatives of the EFCC, before he was subsequently detained.

This will be the second time Bala Tinka who is expected to take over from Dankwambo in 2019, was being detained by the anti-graft Agency at the Gombe zonal office, as the EFCC steps up investigations into the slush funds allegedly deployed to procure victory for the then ruling party, during the 2015 general elections.

Recall, that reports have gone viral that former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has secretly endorsed Dankwambo for the 2019 Presidency.

Bala Bello Tinka, who is believed to be a close Associate Dankwambo, is considered to be among the top notchers eyeing the Governorship ticket under the platform of the PDP, in the 2019 race.

The Head of Operations for the EFCC in Gombe zone, Johnson Babalola, recently informed Journalists that the Agency has finalised arrangements to arraign him and other suspects said to be connected to the PDP campaign funds scam before a court of law in Jos very soon.
