Saraki Reacts As EFCC Seizes His Houses, Marks Others In Lagos by Adeitanajoke(f): 11:32am On May 12
Senate president, Saraki reacts as Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), over the seizure of some of his residential houses located in the Ikoyi area of Lagos.

The EFCC is investigating Saraki’s earnings during his time as governor of Kwara state. Saraki governed the state between 2003 and 2011 before proceeding to the senate.

But the senate president has maintained that the action of the EFCC was a witch-hunt and “only reinforced our earlier stated position that their current investigation is mischievous.”

A statement by Yusuph Olaniyonu, special adviser (media and publicity) to the senate president, read: “Our attention has been drawn to the fact that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has marked certain property belonging to Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, obviously under the claim that they are subject of investigation.

“The action of the EFCC only reinforced our earlier stated position that their current investigation is mischievous, contrary to the tenets of the rule of law and only aimed at settling scores. This position is founded on the fact that these same buildings were the subject of earlier investigations by the EFCC as well as the case initiated by the Federal Government at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

“Also, the case went all the way to the highest court in our country, the Supreme Court of Nigeria. In that case, Saraki was discharged and acquitted because the courts believe the government has no case.”

While it's not out of place for EFCC to investigate known corrupt elements like Saraki; it is clear to discerning minds that EFCC under Magu has out rightly turned partisan.
Many petitions have been submitted to EFCC on several occasions against Oshiomhole and Amaechi, till today EFCC has not deemed it necessary to investigate such petitions.

Nigeria CAN'T make "noticeable" and "sustainable" progress if government officials continue to be stronger than government institutions.

Had GEJ exercised his powers like this, I am sure there will be no APC today. Honestly, Jonathan doomed PDP.

Of course most Nigerian politicians are crooks. My only question is why EFCC would seize houses that the Supreme court had investigated before and deemed okay?

Is Magu not becoming a mad man?

Well, I don't pity anybody but due process should be followed.

GEJ did more bro. In fact, this was copied from him.
Ask about what they did to Amaechi when he was the governor of Rivers State, What they did to APC Lagos Secretariat, NGF election result was disregarded, how 5 lawmakers claimed superiority over 27 in Rivers State, Ekiti gate saga and the 8 lawmakers who impeached the speaker who had more on his side and how they were chased out of the state by Fayose who was backed by the federal government, what about the former speaker that was almost impeached through the back door, what about the dss attack on Tinubu, what about the EFCC attack on Ibori who was opposing GEJ...There are more that I can't even count because they are too much.
You people should stop making Jonathan look like someone different from other politicians because his government strengthened this madness that has been increased by the APC today.

No saint in politics after all.

So these same properties were investigated up to Supreme Court level when Saraki was recently under trial, he was discharged and acquitted but the almajiri herdsman running EFCC aka Magu sent his terrorist thugs to come out and fool themselves again. There’s nothing more to say again, the judiciary has been fockèd up badly, Nigeria is running on a rudderless auto pilot and so any damn nonsense can happen without anybody shaking. Only the useless APC zombies who’ll be happy but the country shall reap the rewards of this maladministration sooner than later

There's no rocket science in this. Saraki's 3 musketeers were arrested by EFCC last months and nothing happens in Kwara without his knowledge.

I knew he would be linked and it would come down to him, it was just a matter of time.
