Saraki Not Arrested by EFCC, Went To The Anti-Graft Agency on His Own Volition - Aide

The media office of the former President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki has confirmed that the former Kwara state governor was a visitor to the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC to clarify issues raised by the anti graft agency.

A statement signed by Yusuph Olaniyonu, media aide to Saraki read in part; "It will be recalled that following the order of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on the Fundamental Human Rights case filed by Dr. Saraki during the period of the former chairman of the EFCC which precluded the commission from investigating him until the matter is dispensed with, the commission at the last hearing on July 14, 2021, pleaded with the judge that the order was preventing them from doing their job.

"Following this complaint, Dr. Saraki, as a responsible citizen, on his own volition approached the commission that at the earliest convenient date, he was willing to visit the commission’s office and clarify all issues they might want to raise with him.

"He, therefore, visited the commission’s office this (Saturday) afternoon and answered some questions. He is back home. He was not arrested. Dr. Saraki also assured the commission that he has nothing to hide and will always make himself available to clear all issues that may require his attention." the statement concluded.
