BREAKING: Aceh governor reportedly arrested by KPK (TJP/File)

Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigators reportedly arrested Aceh Governor Irwandi Yusuf during an operation in Aceh on Tuesday evening.

"There were 10 people arrested during the operation, including two regional heads and some other individuals," KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah said in a statement.

Febri said investigators confiscated millions of rupiah in cash, allegedly part of a commitment fee, during the arrest.

The KPK team, the spokesman said, was currently questioning the 10 individuals at the Aceh Police headquarters.

Governor Irwandi was seen at the Aceh Police headquarters on Tuesday night, serambinews.com reported.

Febri stopped short of confirming whether the former Free Aceh Movement (GAM) leader was among the arrestees, saying only that the arrests were made following a suspicious transaction involving provincial and regency officials. (ahw)
