Former Governor of Kwara State, Northcentral Nigeria, Senator Bukola Saraki today reported at the Special Fraud Unit, SFU, Milverton Street, Ikoyi, Lagos State, Southwest Nigeria, in a black Mercedes Benz SUV with Abuja registration number CH.165RBC at about 11 a.m.
He is being interrogated in connection with N11.6b scam.
He was accompanied by a retinue of security men in two other black SUVs.
As early as 9.30 am, seven of Saraki’s friends and aides arrived the SFU office and waited for the arrival of the former governor.
Senator Saraki drove into the premises of the SFU spotting a native babanriga (agbada) and a pair of black leather slippers.
As he alighted from the vehicle, he went straight to the office of the Commissioner of Police, SFU, Mr. Johnson Tunde Ogunsakin.
As at press time, he was being interrogated at the SFU office.
A source told P.M.NEWS that contrary to media reports that Bukola was being investigated over an alleged N21 billion scam, the money under probe was N11.6 billion. It was gathered that Intercontinental Bank allegedly wrote off N8 billion loan and also returned to Saraki, all the properties he used as collateral to obtain the loan.
