 FORMER Western governor Dr Bob Danaya has been arrested and slapped with a series of misappropriating charges, including a K6 million belonging to the Fly River provincial government in 2008.

Danaya was detained at the Waigani Supreme and National Courts premises yesterday morning by police detectives. 

He was taken to the Boroko Police Station for questioning before being charged and locked up.

NCD-Central commander ACP Jim Andrews confirmed Danaya’s arrest. 

He said police bail had been refused due to the nature of the charges.

Police sources yesterday said claimed the suspect had been evading police for three months since a request was made in July for him to turn up for an interview.
