Massive Tension Everywhere, As Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Faces Immediate Arrest

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, may have landed in troubled waters again, as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has initiated fresh investigations against him.

A fresh letter by the EFCC, in which it claimed that it is probing an alleged case of conspiracy, abuse of office, misappropriation of public funds, theft, and money laundering involving Saraki, suggests that the current administration is not yet done with its effort to nail the former Kwara State Governor.

According to the anti graft Agency, its fresh investigation seeks to look into all salaries, allowances, estacodes, and payments Saraki received as Governor, from 2003 to 2011.

The EFCC notice disclosing its moves against Saraki, was contained in a letter to the State Government, through the Permanent Secretary, Government House, entitled: ‘Investigation Activities: Dr. Bukola Saraki’.

The move came a few days after the International Human Rights Commission, IHRC, announced the appointment of Saraki, as its “Ambassador-at-Large”.

The letter signed by the EFCC Zonal Head, Isyaku Sharu, read in part: “In view of the above, you are kindly requested to furnish us with the full details of all his entitlements, to include but not limited to emoluments, allowances, estacodes, other fringe benefits, and severance package, while he held sway as the Executive Governor of Kwara State, between 2003 and 2011.

“This request is made pursuant to Section 38 (1) & (2) of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (Establishment) Act, 2004, and Section 21 of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act.”
