Senate President Bukola Saraki

Nigeria’s anti-graft body, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), says it is not aware of the alleged seizure of houses believed to belong to Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Concise News learned that the spokesman for the commission Tony Orilade said his office was unaware of the issue.

“I have not been briefed; so, I don’t have any information on it,” he told NAN.

But Orilade had in a statement said that EFCC was obligated by law to enthrone probity and accountability in the governance space and had supremely pursued this duty without ill-will or malice against anyone.

“It is in the interest of the public, and for Saraki’s personal good, that he is not only above board, but be seen at all times to be so,” he had said in a statement.

“Indeed, all the instances in which the EFCC have had cause to sleuth into his financial activities either as a former governor or President of the Senate were driven by overarching public interest and due process of the law.’’

But in his reaction, Saraki insisted that the action of the EFCC was a witch-hunt.
