BREAKING: Saraki Reacts To The Seizure Of His Houses By EFCC

SAHARANEWS – The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has lambasted the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the seizure of some of his residential houses in Ikoyi, Lagos.

They include: 15a, 15b and 17 on MacDonald road. The seizure followed the announcement of a fresh probe against him by the anti-graft commission.

EFCC had explained that it was investigating Saraki’s earnings as governor of Kwara State between 2003 and 2011.

A statement issued on Sunday by Yusuph Olaniyonu, Saraki’s special adviser on media and publicity, read: “Our attention has been drawn to the fact that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has marked certain property belonging to Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, obviously under the claim that they are subject of investigation.

“The action of the EFCC only reinforced our earlier stated position that their current investigation is mischievous, contrary to the tenets of the rule of law and only aimed at settling scores.

“This position is founded on the fact that these same buildings were the subject of earlier investigations by the EFCC as well as the case initiated by the Federal Government at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

“Also, the case went all the way to the highest court in our country, the Supreme Court of Nigeria. In that case, Saraki was discharged and acquitted because the courts believe the government has no case.”
