Houses belonging to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has been sized by The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Information reaching us has it that the houses are situated at 15a, 15b and 17, MacDonald Road at Ikoyi side of Lagos.
The action from EFCC, is coming after the agent recently reopened a new probe into the activities of the senate president when he was governor of Kwara State from 2003 to 2011.
The spokesperson to the senate president Yusuph Olaniyonu, who confirmed the story, said
“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 subjects 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, Dr. Saraki was discharged and acquitted because the courts believe the government has no case.”
