Grapevine was yesterday informed that police had already been put on alert over possible arrests of top officials at the agency anytime from next week.

This as reports indicate that senior officers in agencies recently link with graft have since started travelling to their ruling homes to escape arrest on Fridays.

We are informed at least ten parastatal bosses face possible prosecution over graft.
