Nigeria’s anti-graft agency has arrested two former governors accused of corruption and money laundering. Saminu Turaki, a sitting MP and Orji Kalu, who lost a bid for Nigeria’s presidency in last April’s polls were arrested in Abuja, officials say. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had invited almost all of Nigeria’s 36 former governors for questioning over graft allegations. Kalu and Turaki were the only two that refused to turn up, the EFCC says. (BBC)
