The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has taken in Bukola Saraki, a former Senate president, for questioning over allegations of theft and money laundering.
Saraki arrived at the EFCC Abuja office at about 2pm on Saturday and was taken in immediately by the agency’s investigators, according to sources familiar with the investigation.
It was learnt that the investigation dwells on alleged theft and laundering of public funds using a network of cronies and proxy companies.
A list of the proxy companies involved in the alleged scam is said to have been compiled by the EFCC.
The former two-term Kwara State governor is still in custody as of the time of filing this report.
The EFCC is, however, yet to release an official statement confirming the development.
