After 30 days in EFCC custody, ex-Senator Shehu Sani regains freedom

Shehu Sani, a former senator, has been released after spending 30 days in ustody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The ex-Senator  was arrested on December 31, 2019, and subsequently arraigned on two counts of bribery at a federal high court in Abuja.

The EFCC accused the former senator of extorting $15,000 from one Sani Dauda in November 20, 2019, promising to give it to Ibrahim Muhammad, chief justice of Nigeria, to influence some pending cases in court.

He was also alleged to have collected another $10,000 from Dauda to bribe Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the EFCC.

He has since denied all the allegations.

Inyang Ekwo, the trial judge, granted a N10 million bail to Sani, ordering him to produce one surety who has landed property that is worth the bail sum.

Sani was released on Friday evening after meeting the bail conditions.
