BREAKING: EFCC Set To Grill Saraki’s Wife, Yar’Adua’s Daughter Over Alleged Corruption

efcc-chairman-ibrahim-lamorde1-360222345The daughter of late President Umaru Yar’ Adua and wife of immediate past governor of Kebbi State, Saidu Dakingari, Zainab Dakingari, has been invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over alleged fraud to the tune of N2billion perpetrated during her husband’s tenure as governor of the Northwest State.
The anti-graft agency has also invited Toyin Saraki, wife of the Senate President and former Kwara State Governor, Bukola Saraki, for alleged money laundering.
PREMIUM TIMES reports that Mrs Saraki is wanted in relation to questionable inflow of funds into companies where she has interest and is expected to report at the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja on July 28, 2015 where a crack team of investigators have already been assembled to grill her.
Mrs. Dakingari on the other hand was initially expected to report for questioning at the EFCC headquarters today. However, Premium Times gathered that the former Kebbi first lady sent words that she was away to Saudi for Umrah (lesser hajj), and pleaded to be allowed to report on ‎ July 27, 2015.
She is expected to explain to operatives of the anti-graft agency the source of the steady stream of huge cash into her companies, while she held sway as ‘first lady’ of Kebbi State.
When the online newspaper contacted the EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, for comments, he said, “I’m aware that a new set of suspects w‎ere recently invited. It’s not impossible the two women are among them”.
