The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Senator Shehu Sani.
Sani was arrested today (Tuesday) for alleged extortion of $20,000 from Alhaji Sani Dauda, the owner of ASD Motors.
Sen. Sani was said to have “approached ASD under the guise that he would give the money to Ibrahim Magu to facilitate the prosecution of the former son-in-law to the man, whose case has been pending before the EFCC”, a source close to the EFCC chairman wrote to judicialsketch.com
He was said to have collected about four million naira also in the name of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Mr. Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed, for an undisclosed reason.
ASD might have contacted the security agents, who probably asked him to play along.
It is strongly believed that Senator Sani must have been scamming a lot of people, dropping the name of the EFCC boss or other VIPs in government.
Senator Sani has been very critical of Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari
