The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested three staff of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) following their arrest by for allegedly stealing N100 million.

The EFCC in a statement revealed that the fraud was carried out over a period of three years by a level six officer of the Accounts Department of FAAN, Christy Olabode, her younger brother who worked in the Commercial Department of the agency in Ilorin, Kwara State, Abdul-Shehu Obaze, and an IT officer at FAAN headquarters, in Lagos, Dominic Ojo.
