EFCC interrogates Saraki on corruption allegations

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC continued the interrogation of former Kwara State Governor, Dr Bukola Saraki.

Saraki is accused of fraudulently defrauding Kwara State Government and Societe General Bank of Nigeria, SGBN.

The former governor vehemently denies both allegations, claiming he is being persecuted for opposing Jonathan’s second term.

However, the governor is said to have played an alleged role in the liquidation of the bank started by his father, especially illegal tampering with depositors funds.

The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwajaren who confirmed monday’s interrogation of Saraki, said that the interrogation will continue on tuesday.

Saraki was declared wanted by EFCC, after which he reported personally and was eventually granted administrative bail.

EFCC says they have built a prima facie case against Saraki, pointing out that his prosecution in a law court will commence after his interrogation.

Already, some management staff of SGBN and top government officials in Kwara State during Saraki administration have agreed to serve as prosecution witnesses against Saraki when EFCC starts his prosecution.
