EFCC Gets 14-day Detention Order For Ex-lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, EFCC has supposedly acquired a court order to restrain ex-lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, for 2 weeks to guarantee a thorough investigation right into his supposed participation in name-dropping as well as extortion.
The advancement complied with brand-new claims leveled against the ex-lawmaker by the complainant, Alhaji Sani Dauda.
The former lawmaker was jailed on New Year’s Eve by the EFCC operatives in Abuja for presumably obtaining $10,000 from Dauda, the Chairman of ASD Motors.
Sani allegedly promised to pass the money to the acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, to assist Dauda to resolve an ongoing case with the anti-graft commission.
The $10,000 was said to have been recovered from Sani, but his alleged refusal to honour the invitation from the commission led to his arrest on Tuesday.
The complainant visited the EFCC on Thursday where he made a statement in which he alleged that Sani also dropped the name of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Tanko.
“The complainant claimed that Shehu Sani asked him to bring N4m which would be given to a judge by the CJN to ensure that the case by one Abubakar against the ASD boss did not see the light of the day,” a source stated.
Dauda also reportedly claimed that he gave the $10,000 to Sani on November 29, 2019, adding that the ex-lawmaker also demanded another N1m for the EFCC officials.
