Buhari don't have hands in Shehu Sani’s Arrest – EFCC reveals


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has debunked claims of Senator Shehu Sani being prosecuted for being a fierce critic of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Remember that that the former Kaduna lawmaker was accused of collecting money from Sani Dauda owner of ASD Motors, promising to pass it on to the acting chairman of the anti-graft agency Ibrahim Magu, to influence an investigation.

He was also accused of asking for money he promised to give to Ibrahim Muhammad, chief justice of Nigeria (CJN) and some other judges to influence the outcome of a court case.

In a statement released by EFCC’s acting spokesperson Tony Orilade on Friday, January 10, the anti-graft agency asked Nigerians to detach President Buhari from Shehu Sani’s case as none of his rights have been abused.

Orilade who insisted that some Nigerians “are not really conversant with his offense”, added that it is unfortunate that Nigerians are defending him.

It, however, claims that in some quarters of the breach of his fundamental human rights is merely in the imagination of the purveyors of such claims.

It was further added that Senator Shehu Sani has some questions to answer as regards to the alleged involvement in name-dropping, and particularly that he obtained $25,000 from Alhaji Sani Dauda, who was said to be the ASD Motors boss, in order to help him from the investigations being carried out by the EFCC operatives.

For certain people to brazenly come out to defend a suspect, who is being probed for a serious offense as the one committed by Sani shows that they are not really conversant with his offense.

Further added that some certain people are ready to do anything in support of evil for pecuniary gains. Said this is quite unfortunate.
