A competent source with the commission has confirmed the arrest but has not given full details of the reasons behind his arrest, but it may likely not be unconnected to his stewardship in office as commissioner of the two juicy ministries coupled with his relationship with other political gladiators, financial issues and matters around his political candidature.
While other source linked the arrest of Hon. AK Babura to the alleged forgery and related criminal offense on vital credential.
