Officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) are currently searching the Abuja residence of Shehu Sani, a former senator of the Nigerian Senate.

A report by TheCable sighted by YaahooJournalist quoted a source to have said the EFCC officials arrived at the residence located in Wuse 2, Abuja, around 3;30pm.

Sani, who represented Kaduna central senatorial district between 2015 and 2019, also reportedly said he could assist Dauda in influencing the outcome of some cases using his connection with Muhammad Tanko, the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) and some other judges.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria had distanced himself from Sani, saying he has never had anything to do with the former Kaduna central lawmaker.
