Senator Shehu Sani, who was arrested and framed by the Economic and Financial Crimes, is currently seeking bail after he was accused of extortion, SaharaReporters can confirm.
Sani, a vocal critic of President Muhammadu Buhari, was arrested for allegedly extorting $20,000 from Sani Dauda, owner of ASD Motors.
SaharaReporters findings however, showed that the EFCC arrested the former senator before seeking out his accuser to prove his innocence.
A source familiar with the case said, "He is seeking bail at the moment."
Dauda had been asked by the anti-graft agency to prove his allegation against the senator.
