EFCC Quizzes Saraki’s Wife Over Alleged Money Laundering

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday quizzed the wife of the Senate President, Mrs Toyin Saraki, over alleged money laundering.

It would be recalled that the Commission had last week invited the Senate President’s wife for question on allegations bordering on money laundering.

Mrs Saraki is being quizzed on issues related to contracts executed by companies allegedly linked to her while her husband was Kwara State Governor between 2003 and 2011.

EFCC spokesman, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the interrogation of Mr Saraki at the Headquarters of the Commission in Abuja on Tuesday.

Mrs Saraki in a statement issued by her NGO, Well Being Foundation, also confirmed her interrogation.

It said Saraki surrendered herself to the EFCC in line with her believe in transparency and accountability.

The statement added that she pledged to support and cooperate with the EFCC in ensuring credible investigation into the allegation.

The invitation of the Senate President’s wife had drawn the ire of his political associates who alleged that it was a case of political with-hunting targeted at her husband.

They have argued that the timing of the invitation was wrong, considering that the Sarakis left office over five years ago and were quick to attribute it to the frosty relationship between Saraki and the ruling APC leadership.
