EFCC has arrested Sen. Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly between 2015 and 2019.
According to TheNation, Sani was arrested for alleged extortion of $20,000 from the owner of ASD Motors.
The vocal ex-lawmaker was arrested in Abuja on Tuesday, for allegedly using the name of the acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr Ibrahim Magu, to extort various sums of money from unsuspecting members of the public .
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.” .
Following several failure to continue reporting at the EFCC office, his house was stormed today and he was arrested.
