Extortion: Shehu Sani Has A Case To Answer, Says EFCC by happney65: 9:59pm On Jan 10
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said the embattled former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has a case to answer for the alleged involvement in extortion and name-dropping.

The commission stated that Sani was being detained for allegedly obtaining $25,000 from an auto dealer, Alhaji Sani Dauda, in order to shield him from criminal investigations by the anti-graft agency.

Acting EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, explained in a statement in Abuja on Friday, that Sani is currently facing a criminal investigation, and is being detained “in a very conducive environment based on a valid court order.”

The commission dismissed insinuations that Sani was held for being a critic of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), stressing that those defending the ex-lawmaker were not conversant with his alleged crime.

It stated, “Invariably, claims in some quarters of the breach of his fundamental human rights are merely in the imagination of the purveyors of such claims.

“Let it be stated clearly that Senator Shehu Sani has questions to answer as regards his alleged involvement in name-dropping, and particularly that he obtained $25,000 from Alhaji Sani Dauda, the ASD Motors boss, in order to help shield him from investigations being carried out by the EFCC.”

The anti-graft agency took a swipe at those defending Sani, saying it was unfortunate that they were supporting evil for pecuniary gains.

It said, “For certain people to brazenly come out to defend a suspect who is being probed for a serious offence as the one committed by Sani shows that they are not really conversant with his offence.

“It is unfortunate that certain people are ready to do anything to support evil for pecuniary gains.”

Some of the news from govt agencies most times is Childish. Amature!

Government oppressing its citizen, and keep dishing out indecent, non-coordinating and no sense statements.


Too much odd and ridiculous press release from the government especially when they know they are doing wrong.

Someone will see a 360-degree truth yet a PhD holder somebody Inside government cannot lie properly. Like the people lost their minds or don't exist? Or something?

No way all of us can be dumb.

Even if the govt want to lie I mean give us "educated lie".


For now, person don give up for Nigeria.

I like APC, they must look for something to nail you down. The man has been against them in a way for sometime, especially that dwarf Governor. They have found the loophole and there you have it. EFCC will use it to make sure they keep him in jail but those loyal to Buhari are all saints

Just do your work and completely ignore those wailers. Their evil and corrupt avenue for quick wealth are closing hence their agonies and false narratives. They only thrive under filthy very filthy climes and will never support strong decent incorruptible government. May God periah looters and their town criers

EFCC kindly give us bank trail of the amount collected by Shehu Sani. A trail of funds movement from source (ASD car dealer) to Sani (either in the bank or cash at home/house or usage). If you cannot, please release the innocent man and stop taking us as FOOLS!.

This EFCC style of investigation is not expected from a 21st century anti graft set up. They detain you and start looking for evidence to implicate u by fire by force. Lol

He who gives and takes bribe are both guilty.


How long does it take to thrash out this simple matter and charge the case to court?

Why arrest someone and purchase a court order to detain them while you now commence investigation?

Is this a treason too?

By the time buhari's tenure is over, Nigeria would be a banana republic!

Is EFCC saying Shehu sanni is already guilty and the Auto dealer innocent? They shud come out straight. People are supporting him because it’s a not just a mere allegation bt one hard to believe also.

If they have any credible evidence they shud take him to court and stop this media trial, assumptions and propaganda as they are known for.

This statement by EFCC is far from professional and suggests they hv assumed him guilty b4 a trial or presenting any evidence.

Must you people twist everything to politics and fighting opposition? So because Shehu Sani is in opposition he must not be called to answer for his crime? Please Kaduna state government, and APC have nothing to tell you because they are not crime fighters. If you can't take the one EFCC said, you are free to continue assuming and assuming plus assuming on top of assuming.
