Uncharacteristically, silence is the reaction from former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, as a story emerged over his arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly using the name of its Acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, to extort money.
His phone line remained off on New Year’s Eve and day, and he has not reacted to the scandalous story making the rounds in the media.
As the story goes, he was arrested for alleged extortion of $20,000 from the owner of ASD Motors.
The source said: “He was said to have collected the $20,000 from the owner of ASD Motors on the grounds that he is very close to the EFCC boss. “He was subsequently arrested and granted administrative bail while he refunded the money to the victim.
“He was asked to report but made himself incommunicado. He must have been scamming a lot of people, dropping the name of the EFCC boss.”
