The Senate President of the 8th Assembly, Bukola Saraki has been arrested by the Economic and financial crimes commission over his alleged involvement in theft and money laundering.

The arrest of the former senator was made on Saturday.

Saraki who served between 2015 and 2019 has fresh allegations levelled against him, despite the Supreme Court discharging all cases against him.

This time, Saraki will be tried for using a network of proxy companies and alleged theft and laundering of public funds.

An organised system of payments was said to be used by the former senator availing him the opportunity to use suspected proxies on purport contracts for Kwara state.

A former governor of Nassarawa state is also facing a similar issue and has since been arrested for Money Laundering.
