The ex-senator in a statement on Saturday, February 1, said his fundamental human rights were unjustly and unfairly breached by the EFCC, Daily Trust reports.
He said during his incarceration, the anti-graft agency subjected him to traumatizing interrogations, searched houses and offices in addition to compelling him to declare his assets.
The former lawmaker stated that the agency blocked his bank accounts, seized his phones and tried to subject him to take a polygraph lie detector test.
Sani who stated that he was detained all in the name of fictional 24 or 25 thousand dollar extortion, said all the information made against him while he was in detention were outright lies.
He insisted that the EFCC may frame him but cannot silence him.
Sani commended the court for granting him bail and promised to abide by all the conditions of his bail conditions.
In another report, the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami says the investigation into the Malabu Oil and Senator Danjuma Goje, former governor of Gombe cases are “watertight and intensified”.
Malami said this in a statement issued on Friday in Abuja by Dr. Umar Gwandu, Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.
The AGF said he has never at any time stated anywhere or advised any person or authority that there was no prima facie case in the matter.
The AGF insisted that all those indicted in the case will be prosecuted.
