The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has sized the house of Bukola Saraki, the President of Nigeria's Senate in Ikoyi, Lagos State. Senate President accuse the agency of political witch-hunt. He also said the property in question has been under investigation for several years. Bukola Saraki’s press secretary, Mr. Yusuph Olaniyonu said

“Our attention has been drawn to the fact that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has marked certain property belonging to Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, obviously under the claim that they are subjects of investigation. “The action of the EFCC only reinforced our earlier stated position that their current investigation is mischievous, contrary to the tenets of the rule of law and only aimed at settling scores. “This position is founded on the fact that these same buildings were the subject of earlier investigations by the EFCC, as well as the case initiated by the Federal Government at the Code of Conduct Tribunal. “Also, the case went all the way to the highest court in our country, the Supreme Court of Nigeria. In that case, Dr. Saraki was discharged and acquitted because the courts believe the government has no case.”

EFCC opened a new investigation last week on the Senate President during his time as a Governor of Kwara state from 2003-2011.
