The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Sen. Shehu Sani over alleged extortion of $20,000 from the owner of ASD Motors.

Shehu Sani represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly from 2015 to 2019.

According to source, Sani allegedly extorted $20,000 from the owner of ASD Motors, with the promise to pass it on to the acting chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu.

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.”
