The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned a former member of the Senate representing Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani.

Senator Sani was arraigned by the anti-graft agency on Monday at the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

He was charged with two counts of bribery and advance free fraud.

The presiding judge, Justice E.I Ekwo, stood down the case till 12:00pm following a protest by Sani’s lawyer that they had not been served with the charges.

Sani was alleged to have demanded $20,000 from a car dealer, Alhaji Sani Dauda, to avoid EFCC investigation.

He had been detained by the commission since December 31, 2019 over the allegation.
