The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has confirmed that the former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, was arrested by its operatives in Abuja.
“He is now being quizzed in our Jabi headquarters in Abuja”, PM News reveals.
According to the source, Sani collected money from the chairman and CEO of ASD Motors, his namesake Sani Dauda, under the pretense of passing it as a bribe to EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu.
Sani Dauda was a former chairman of Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited(PAN). His ASD Motors is a major car dealer in Abuja.
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.
He has been a trenchant critic of the APC government, both in Kaduna and Abuja, since then.
