Nigeria's Ex-Attorney General Arrested in Dubai Over Oil Deal

Former attorney general, Mohammed Adoke, was taken into custody seven months after Nigeria's anti-graft agency issued a warrant for his arrest as part of an investigation into one of the oil industry's biggest suspected corruption scandals. Adoke is allegedly connected with illegal payments that lead to the 2011 acquisition of OPL 245, the biggest oil field in the country.
