The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has arrested an outdoor advertisement executive over unauthorised political campaigns that appeared on two billboards in Enugu bearing the name and logo of the Commission.

The EFCC said the advert executive, Baron Nnamdi, was arrested for producing two super 48 sheet Billboards located at Otigba and Zik Avenue Junctions in Enugu, which bore offensive messages using the name of the EFCC to threaten the aspiration of some politicians in the state in the build-up to the 2023 general election.
