The trial of the former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sanni, witnessed some drama on Monday, 6th January as the former lawmaker refused to take a lie detector test instead opted to swear with Quran, The Nations reports.
The former lawmaker is being tried for alleged extortion of $24,000 from the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ASD Motors, Alhaji Sani Dauda.
The Nation, in its report, claimed it got wind of the development via an inside source.
As reported by the inside source below:
“I won’t take the test; I do not trust the machine. I am not sure whether or not the machine is working well.
“Instead of a polygraph, give me the Holy Qur’an to swear with.”
The source added:
“Following his refusal, our detectives did not force him to go through the test.
“But they asked him to write a statement on his refusal to undergo polygraph because he had earlier sworn by his grave but he has not been straightforward.”
