Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has obtained a court order to detain the former Senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, comrade Shehu Sani for 14 days.
The former lawmaker was accused of extorting Sani Dauda, owner of ASD Motors by allegedly demanding for $10,000 in November 2019. The former lawmaker allegedly promised to pass the money on to EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.
Sani was also accused of asking for N4m to be given to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Ibrahim Tanko over a case he allegedly claimed won’t see the light of the day.
According to the anti-graft agency, the 14-day detention order against Shehu Sani will help in a thorough investigation into the allegations.
