The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has rearrested a pension thief and former top civil servant, John Yusuf and obtained a remand order to enable him serve his six years imprisonment in Kuje prison as directed by the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

But due to the verdict of Justice Talba of the FCT High Court , which gave him light sentence and set him free, Yusuf has been at large until he was rearrested in Gombe.
