The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has confirmed the arrest of the former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani. According to a source, “He is now being quizzed in our Jabi headquarters in Abuja”.
It was being alleged that the Senator collected money from the chairman and CEO of ASD Motors, his namesake ,Sani Dauda, under the pretence of passing it as 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.But the amount collected could not be confirmed,though sources alleged an amount close to $20,000.
According to an EFCC source, “The case has been on for some time. He was granted administrative bail and told to report weekly. But he breached the terms of the bail,hence his arrest today”.

In addition to this,sources are alleging that the EFCC operators are reportedly quizzing him over the allegations of scamming some other people and allegedly dropping the name of the EFCC boss before suspects who have cases with the commission”.
