UPDATE: EFCC grants Saraki bail after interrogations

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commissiin (EFCC) has released the immediate past president of the Senate, Bukola Saraki on Saturday after he undergone interogation from the operatives of the commission.

Saraki was said to have honoured an invitation from the anti-graft agency and was quizzed by the operatives of the commission for some hours before he was let go.

Sources said he was back in his home in Abuja after visiting the headquarter of the anti-graft agency.

According to a report by THISDAY, Saraki said his invitation by the commission was no big deal.

“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.”

In May 2019, a federal high court in Abuja had issued an order restraining the EFCC, Department of State Services (DSS), and other agencies from probing Saraki over allegations of money laundering.

But on July 14, 2021, the EFCC had asked a federal high court in Abuja to vacate the order restraining the commission from investigating the former senate president.
