As the wife of Nigeria’s Senate president and former Kwara state First Lady, Mrs Toyin Saraki, answered EFCC’s invitation, she was escorted to the anti-graft agency’s office by five senators and 20 House of Reps members, including the Speaker of the Kwara State House of Assembly Ali Ahmad.
The senators included Dino Maleye, Peter Nwaobosi, Abdul Abubakar, Binta Mashin and Isa Misau. They all arrived EFCC headquarters at 12.30 pm where Mrs Saraki was grilled by EFCC officials over alleged fraud charges for almost six hours before she was finally released to go home. She’s expected back there today by 10am.
Mrs Saraki later released a statement via her private secretary Hakeem Olagoje, saying she was very ready and willing to cooperate fully with the EFCC on the investigation.
