A former Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). He was arrested on Saturday in Abuja and in the custody of the anti-graft agency.
Mr Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesperson of the commission, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that Saraki was invited for questioning over allegations of corruption and money laundering.
He said the former senate president was currently in the custody of the commission for continuation of interrogation.
The invitation and detention of Saraki for interrogation was happening days after a former Nasarawa State Gov. Tanko Al-Makura and his wife, Mairo, were invited and interrogated.
The commission had invited Al-Makura and the wife over alleged breach of public trust and misappropriation of billions of naira by his administration.(NAN)
