The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Saturday confirmed the arrest and detention of former President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki.
Mr Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesperson of the commission, told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that Saraki was invited for questioning over allegations of corruption and money laundering.
He said that the former senate president was currently in the custody of the commission for the continuation of interrogation.
The invitation and detention of Saraki for interrogation happened, days after a former Nasarawa State Gov. Tanko Al-Makura and his wife, Mairo, were invited and interrogated.
The commission had invited Al-Makura and his wife for questioning over alleged breach of public trust and misappropriation of funds by his administration.
