Saraki will be facing interrogation by crack EFCC operatives over alleged theft and laundering of public funds using a network of proxy companies.

The suspected proxies, who executed purported contracts for Kwara State under Mr Saraki, allegedly made returns, for many years, to the former governor, forming an organised system of payments.

Saraki’s arrest is coming days after a former governor of Nassarawa state, Tanko Al-Makura was also arrested for Money-laundering.
