Shehu Sani, a former Senator who represented Kaduna Central during the 8th Nigerian Senate, has been reportedly arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
YaahooJournalist reports that Sani was reportedly arrested for alleged extortion of $20,000 from the owner of ASD Motors, a source familiar with the matter said.
According to the source: “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.
“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.”
