The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reportedly launched fresh investigations into Senate President Bukola Saraki's time as governor of Kwara state.
EFCC wrote a letter to the state government, through the Permanent Secretary, Government House, dated April 26, and titled, “Investigation Activities: Dr. Bukola Saraki.”
The letter signed by EFCC's zonal head Isyaku Sharu directed the Kwara state government to furnish it with the full details of Saraki's entitlements.
This, the letter stated, should include but not limited to emoluments, allowances, estacodes, other fringe benefits and severance package while he held sway as the Executive Governor of Kwara State between 2003 and 2011. “This request is made pursuant to Section 38 (1) & (2) of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (Establishment) Act, 2004 and Section 21 of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act,” the letter read.
