Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) early on Monday arrested Malam Ismail Umaru Dikko, the Director-General of Kaduna State Urban Planning Development Agency (KASUPDA).

Umaru Dikko and his staff were at a meeting around 10 am. when the EFCC came knocking at their office.

Some KASUPDA staff tried to stop the EFCC from leaving with the DG.
