Former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, has been transferred to the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Mr. Dasuki will be interrogated for his role in the $2.1 billion arms contract scandal.
Mr. Dasuki was arrested by the SSS on Tuesday after about a month-long siege on his residence in Abuja. The agency thereafter took him to its headquarters where he has been in detention since then.
The EFCC already has in its custody a media mogul, Raymond Dokpesi; a former governor of Sokoto state, Attahiru Bafarawa; and a former Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda and others.
They were all arrested after being indicted by a presidential committee that investigated arms procurement during the last administration.
The committee said about $2.2 billion was diverted to purposes other than arms procurement.
President Buhari had after receiving the interim report of the committee directed all relevant security agencies to arrest all those indicted by the committee.
