Toyin Saraki's Lawyers Contradict Bukola Saraki's Claims. by modath(f): 9:19pm On Apr 05, 2016

Lawyers to Toyin Saraki, the wife of the embattled Nigerian Senate president, Bukola Saraki, have said the controversial hidden assets the politician failed to disclose, tucked away in secret offshore tax havens, belong solely to Mrs. Saraki, and not her family estate.

A trove of internal data from the Panama-based offshore-provider, Mossack Fonseca, obtained by the German newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung and shared by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) with PREMIUM TIMES and over 100 other media partners in 82 countries, revealed that the properties were part of the assets belonging to the Senate President’s immediate family.

A PREMIUM TIMES investigation on Monday exposed Mr. Saraki as having failed to declare the assets among those filed with the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB), as required by Nigerian laws.

However, Mr. Saraki, through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, claimed in a statement Monday night that he fully complied with the provisions of the law.

He said the assets he failed to disclose belonged to the estate of his wife’s family.“It is public knowledge that Mrs. Saraki comes from a family of independent means and wealth with numerous and varied assets acquired over decades in family estates and investments,” Mr. Olaniyonu said.

But the claims by Mr. Saraki contradicted those by his wife’s lawyers who said the assets in question belonged to no one else but Mrs. Saraki alone.


The London-based law firm of Harbottle & Lewis, who are lawyers to Mrs. Saraki, in clarifying the legal position of the controversial assets, said its client solely own them.

“Our client is the sole shareholder in Sandon Development Limited. There are not and have never been any other shareholders in Sandon Developments Limited,” Harbottle & Lewis stated in a response to enquiries by the ICIJ in a letter dated March 19, 2016.

Similarly, the law firm also confirmed that Mrs. Saraki was the “sole shareholder of Landfield International Developments Limited from incorporation until January 2015,” when she sold her shares to a third party.


Also in one document seen by PREMIUM TIMES, Mrs. Saraki insisted she was the sole director of Girol Properties Limited.

When it rains, it pouuuuuurrrrs, so is this Saraki's case..

Seems the "heads" of the bank customers of Société Generale & Trade Banks that he ran aground & the Kwarans he impoverished through his unbridled greed have formed a legion and are "doing" him strong tinz!!

He just can't catch a break, even the senators going on the CCT field trip with him are tapering down, very soon, it will just be him , his lawyers & Pa Chukwudi44 cool

Saraki should start praying he doesn't end up with gay cellmates. His prayer warriors should take note and re-direct their prayer points accordingly . . .
He should realize they don't confer chieftancy titles in prisons and therefore understamd why people may come out the prison holding what looks like walking sticks.

Saraki's love triangle with Karma & Nemesis continues... grin

Just like quicksand...the more the looter struggles to get out of his mess, the deeper he sinks... which isn't entirely a bad thing because it keeps people like Pa Shukudi busy.

Saraki is not Yoruba nor is he an Hausa man. He is from the North Central. Regardless, he must burn to ashes for directly/indirectly harming others to further his ambition. All the members of his family who have directly or indirectly helped him will rot to death. All his supporters and their families shall die in questionable circumstances......Insha Allah!

Very sure Saraki's inlaws must have called their daughter and asked her "wtf is wrong with your husband?? Why is he dragging us into this?" Lol.

This PanamaPapers hav surely driven the last nail into Saraki's coffin. Aint no chance in hades he's escape this.

Funny how Nigeria is kept poor by gross structural imbalances, and the predatory actions of a shockingly corrupt political class, yet, some people don't see any wrong in all these. How's the country to get better when thieves keep having a field day?

Ko baje fun slot..... See who is talking, perhaps you should read up Galatians 3:1 it reads: "O FOOLISH Galatians (edo3), who hath bewitched you (edo3), that ye (edo3) should not obey the truth, before .........." Finish it yourself. No matter what reject slavery, if truly you are true omoluabi, you won't be in support of such a bastard as Saraki. Abeg shift one side omo Yoruba indeed undecided
