BREAKING NEWS: Bukola Saraki Arrested By EFCC Over Renewed Allegations Of Corruption




Bukola Saraki

According to report from PREMIUM TIMES the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has taken former Nigerian Senate President Bukola Saraki into detention on charges of theft and money laundering.

Mr Saraki, the former governor of Kwara State, was held on Saturday, according to individuals acquainted with the issue, which could lead to another round of difficulty for the politician.

Between 2015 and 2019, Mr Saraki served as Senate President, during which time he was accused of corruption and falsified asset declarations. The Supreme Court acquitted him in June 2018.

However, according to PREMIUM TIMES, in his current case with the EFCC, Mr Saraki is expected to answer questions about suspected theft and laundering of public monies through a network of cronies and proxy firms.

The alleged proxies who purportedly completed bogus contracts for Kwara State under Mr Saraki allegedly made returns to the former governor for many years, building an organised network of corrupt money flow.

According to insiders, the cash involved totaled hundreds of millions of naira and hundreds of thousands of dollars at various occasions.

PREMIUM TIMES has learned that anti-graft investigators have obtained a list of the proxy businesses involved and have examined a pattern of questionable transactions involving them and Mr Saraki.

According to PREMIUM TIMES' research based on interviews with people aware with the property, one of them has been allegedly responsible for subsidising Mr Saraki's lifestyle, including paying over a hundred million to settle bills for rent and restoration of Mr Saraki's Maitama mansion.
