Ogunlewe, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, is a former Minister of Works.

A top official of the commission confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Wednesday.

The source said the trio would be arraigned on 18 counts bordering on stealing, abuse of office and obtaining money by false pretences.

According to him, the three men have been subject of investigation in an alleged case of abuse of office and misappropriation of funds.

Sources had earlier told NAN that the suspects were arrested on Wednesday morning following a petition written against them by the institution’s chapter of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities in August.
