Saraki Returns Home, Speaks on EFCC’s Arrest




(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has returned home after he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Saturday.

Saraki, who spent a few hours with operatives of the EFCC told THISDAY that he met with officials of the commission after an invitation to clarify some issues.

“They asked to see me and after attending a wedding reception, I drove there myself. And when they were satisfied, they said I could go. That’s it,” Senator Saraki said.

His spokesman, Yusuph Olaniyonu in a statement following the encounter with the EFCC issued a statement.



He said: “The Media Office of Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki will like to confirm that this afternoon, Dr. Saraki on his own volition visited the office of the EFCC to clarify any issue that the commission may want to raise with him.

“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 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.”
