Alleged $24,000 Extortion: Nigerian Government Attempting To Silence Me - SENATOR SHEHU SANI

SENATOR SHEHU SANI

ABUJA, NIGERIA - The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN), led by retired Major General Muhammadu Buhari is doing everything to ensure that I am silenced. 

This position was made known by a former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani. 

Senator Shehu Sani particularly stated that the FGN is making the attempts to silence him over his criticism of the government of Major General Muhammadu Buhari using fronts.

Senator Shehu Sani made the allegation that the FGN is using his accuser, through the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, to “frame” him in the extortion scandal.

It would be recalled that two houses and an office of the embattled Senator Shehu Sani had been searched in Abuja by the operatives of the EFCC, being part of the ongoing probe of the former lawmaker for alleged extortion of $24,000 from the Chairman of ASD Motors, Alhaji Sani Dauda.

In his petition, Alhaji Sani Dauda had claimed that the former senator demanded N4m from him to give to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, and four other judges to influence some pending cases in court.

However, Justice Tanko Muhammad denied links with Shehu Sani.

Speaking from the EFCC detention facility, Senator Shehu Sani said: “The allegations of ‘extortion’ against me are baseless, fact-less, unfounded, hollow and unsubstantial.

“It is a scripted stream of mischievous concoctions and utter fabrications using a puppet state agent; all aimed at splashing faeces and mud on me.

“The extortion allegation is nothing but a wholesale falsehood, packaged in a phantom anti-graft facade to taint, stain and mute me. That shall never happen if I am alive.

“I have made my statement and provided all my facts against their package of lies and I demand the EFCC to make public all the sheets of our statements and supporting documents for the world to see.

“My detention is unfair, unjust, prearranged and politically motivated.

“Alhaji Sani Dauda and his hidden sponsors have not been able to provide any proof of their allegations. I’m unjustly incarcerated on the grounds of an arranged two-page petition backed with no evidential or documentary proof.

“Fascism thrives in frame up of its critics.

“They claim extortion and here they are closing my bank accounts, searching my houses and offices and demanding I declare my assets, of which I have already done that at the CCB (Code of Conduct Bureau) last year when I left the Senate.

“Frame-up cannot silence me!”

“I have never ever met with the CJN or any judge or judges or ever called directly or indirectly to offer to give or to give directly or indirectly any form of gratification from Alhaji Sani Dauda.

“I have never ever discussed with ASD on any form of bribe or gratification to be given to any judge or any EFCC official.

“The bribe story is phantom, the bribe story is a fake, imaginative work of fiction, cruelly crafted to smear me, to frame me and to justify my persecution.

“The bribe story is a heap of blatant lies and outright falsehood concocted and fabricated, using a front and the EFCC to premiere a state drama.

“ASD is a barely educated front for a state mission.

“Criminalising me or ‘framing me’ will not silence me, bend me or compromise me."
