Bank staff testify in Shehu Sani’s bribery trial

Senator Shehu Sani

Two members of staff of Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) were at the Federal High Court, Abuja on Tuesday to testify in the ongoing trial of Senator Shehu Sani, former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central.

Beckley Ojo and Elizabeth Nwoka, who were compliance officers with the bank, testified before Justice Inyang Ekwo in a two-count charge of bribery and advance fee fraud levied against Sani by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Sani was arraigned on January 21 following his arrest in December for allegedly collecting $25,000 in the name of the EFCC acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

Sani has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
