The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Saturday quizzed a former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, over fresh corruption allegations bordering on theft and money laundering.
A senior official at the commission said Saraki was not arrested by the anti-graft agency but he was invited
.According to him, Saraki was to answer questions over alleged theft and laundering of public funds using a network of cronies and proxy companies.Another official, who confirmed Saraki’s interaction with the operatives of the commission, said Saraki was not actually the target of the fresh probe but a former governor in Kwara State, Abdul-Fatah Ahmed who is his ally.
”No, the commission is not originally probing Saraki. We’re are investigating former governor Ahmed and the investigation necessitates that we invite him (Saraki) in order to shed more lights on some issues,” the source said.He added that Ahmed, while he was governor and other cronies to Saraki ‘executed’ some contracts for him in Kwara State.
