Lome - Police in Togo have arrested an exiled Chadian opposition figure given a five-year jail sentence in absentia for his part in a multi-million dollar international fraud, a security official said on Monday.

Hassan Fadoul Kitir was one of several people convicted last November by a Paris court for a fraud and counterfeit operation involving a total of 140 million Bahrain dinars, dating from more than a decade ago.

Kitir is a former special advisor to Chad's President Idriss Deby Itno.
