EFCC Witnesses Couldn’t Indict Me – Shehu Sani Opens Up On Extortion Allegation
The senator who represented Kaduna Central senatorial district between 2015 and 2019, Shehu Sani says the witnesses of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) could not indict him in court.
Sani is being tried for allegedly extorting one Sani Dauda, owner of ASD Motors, of $25,000, called two witnesses to testify in court.
The anti-corruption agency said Sani, allegedly told Dauda that he would pass the money on to Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the anti-graft agency.
He also reportedly said he could assist Dauda in influencing the outcome of some cases using his connection with the CJN and some other judges.
He was subsequently granted N10 million bail and a surety in like sum after pleading not guilty.
On Tuesday, the former senator took to Twitter to express his feeling over the trial which he has described as a witch hunt.
“When their own witnesses failed to indict or implicate me for $25k ‘extortion’, they now posted on their Twitter handle that its ‘$10 Million fraud’.This tells the motive and the whole intention.” He tweeted.
