Shehu Sani mocks EFCC over disparity in bribe allegation

Senator Shehu Sani

Senator Shehu Sani has mocked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the differences in the bribery figure which he is accused of.

The EFCC presented two witnesses on Tuesday in its case against the senator at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

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.

The anti-graft then wrote on Twitter that the former lawmaker was being tried for alleged $10 million fraud.

Sani wrote in response on Twitter: “They arraigned me for $25k ‘extortion’ and come to Twitter to post ‘$10 Million fraud’ this tells the story.”

He added: “When their own witnesses failed to indict or implicate me for $25k ‘extortion’, they now posted on their Twitter handle that its ‘$10 Million fraud’. This tells the motive and the whole intention.”
