BREAKING NEWS: EFCC Produces Shehu Sani For Arraignment In Court

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has brought Senator Shehu Sani to a federal high court in Abuja to be arraigned on charges of extortion.
Sani, a former lawmaker, who represented Kaduna Central in the eighth Senate, has been in the custody of the anti-graft commission since December 2019 when he was arrested.

Earlier, EFCC had presented incriminating audiotapes to boost its evidence in the allegations against Senator Sani.

The tapes which are 13 in number contained conversations between Sani and his accuser, one Sani Dauda, a car dealer.

The anti-graft agency was said to have played the tapes to the hearing of the ex-senator in the presence of his lawyers Audu Mohammed Lawal and Glory Peter on Wednesday, January 15.

The former federal lawmaker was reported to have confirmed that the voice on the tape was his but alleged that parts of the conversation had been erased.

The embattled former lawmaker subsequently challenged the EFCC to publish the telephone conversation between him and his accuser.

Sani also vowed to make the full audio conversation he had with Dauda public when his trial begins at the court.

The former lawmaker's aide, Suleiman Ahmed, claimed that the audio presented by the EFCC to prove Sani's alleged extortion of Dauda had been doctored.
