TENSION: Saraki's Wife Leaves EFCC Interrogation Room Very Worried


Toyin Saraki, the wife of Senate President Bukola Saraki, left the main offices of the EFCC after more than five hours of intense questions by investigators on Wednesday. It was the second day Mrs. Saraki was grilled by officials of the anti-corruption commission about her involvement in laundering funds allegedly looted during her husband's two-term tenure as governor of Kwara State.

Sahara Reporters had disclosed how Senate President Saraki and his wife collaborated in looting funds from Kwara state using fictitious names of depositors. The couple also scammed numerous other banks by taking out dubious loans, and plundering funds belonging to Kwara State.

It was also revealed that Mrs. Saraki helped launder her husband's ill-gotten cash through various shady banking transactions and by making deposits into their personal accounts.
An EFCC investigator told a SaharaReporters correspondent this evening that Mrs. Saraki “left knowing that there is a strong case against her.”

The investigator also disclosed that "many of the allegations against her [Mrs. Saraki] connect directly" to her husband, Saraki’s own activities.

A source at EFCC said Mrs. Saraki “may be asked to return again for questioning" related to the commission's ongoing investigation into alleged theft and money laundering involving her husband and her.

EFCC would now explore issues that arose from Mrs. Saraki's responses to investigators' questions.
