Former Nigerian lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has reportedly denied extorting Sani Dauda, owner of ASD Motors, and has agreed to a public physical interaction between the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the businessman.
The anti-graft commission has announced that Dauda, who accused former Senator Sani of extortion, would be brought forward with the purpose of restating his allegation in the presence of the accused.
Sani was arrested by the EFCC after a petition was filed by Dauda, who accused the senator of extorting $20,000 from him.
Dauda alleged that the former senator had claimed to have a good relationship with the acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, and would intervene on his behalf regarding an issue he had with the anti-graft agency.
Reports suggest that the EFCC has asked Dauda to bring in relevant documents to prove his allegations.
“The EFCC acted on a petition from the car dealer. We did not create the document.
“Detectives will engage Dauda on Thursday and the senator. We have asked him to bring all relevant documents on the transactions between the two parties.
“We are also screening the contents of telephone messages between the senator and Dauda.
“We have two parallel claims. It is our job as investigators to sieve the information at our disposal,” the source said.
