The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Sen. Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly between 2015 and 2019, according to a report by TheNation.
The report revealed that a source said Sani was arrested for alleged extortion of $20,000 from the owner of ASD Motors.
The source said: “He was said to have collected the $20,000 from the owner of ASD Motors on the grounds that he is very close to the EFCC boss.
“He was subsequently arrested and granted administrative bail while he refunded the money to the victim.
“He was asked to report but made himself incommunicado. He must have been scamming a lot of people, dropping the name of the EFCC boss.”
Shehu Sani, a human rights activist, was elected senator in 2015, under the All Progressives Congress platform. When he could not get the party’s ticket in 2019, he ran on the ticket of the Peoples Redemption Party, but lost to Uba Sani of the APC.
