Alleged Bribery: 2 Bank Staff Testify in Senator Shehu Sani’s Trial

Two staff of the Guarantee Trust Bank (GTB), on Tuesday, gave their evidence in the ongoing trial of Senator Shehu Sani, the former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Beckley Ojo and Elizabeth Nwoka, who were compliance officers with the bank, testified before Justice Inyang Ekwo in a two-count charge of bribery and advance fee fraud levied against Sani by the EFCC.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the EFCC had, on Jan. 27, arraigned the former lawmaker, who was arrested in December 2019 for allegedly “collecting 25,000 dollars″ in the name of the EFCC acting chairman, Ibrahim Magic.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
