The former NSA was first arrested on December 1, 2015 by DSS and arraigned in Court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

After perfecting his bail granted by the court, he was released on December 29, 2015 but was immediately re-arrested by the operatives of DSS.

He remained in the custody since then in violation of series of court orders issued for his release.
