Senator Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged extortion.
Sani who served as a Nigerian senator between 2015 and 2019 was allegedly arrested for extorting 20,000 dollars from the owner of ASD Motors.
“He was said to have collected the $20,000 from the owner of ASD Motors on the grounds that he is very close to the EFCC boss, as source had disclosed.
“He was subsequently arrested and granted administrative bail while he refunded the money to the victim.
“He was asked to report but made himself incommunicado. He must have been scamming a lot of people, dropping the name of the EFCC boss.”
