The findings, the Presidency says, have resulted in a directive to ensure that Dasuki and other officials found culpable are investigated by law enforcement agencies.

Dasuki’s possible arrest could really kick-start Buhari’s anticipated anti-corruption campaign which will see previous administrations probed for fraud and financial misappropriation. Buhari’s strong anti-corruption stance formed a key part of his campaign as he promised to plug several leakages and curb government spending which was believed to have spiraled out of control under the Jonathan administration.

Former minister of petroleum Diezani Allison-Madueke has also been arrested in London on money laundering charges but not directly as result of the findings of a presidential probe, although the Buhari government is believed to have cooperated with British authorities.
