Fraud Unit of the police, SFU, yesterday, declared former Kwara State governor,
Senator Bukola Saraki, wanted following the refusal of a court to grant his
request for restraining order.
Also wanted by the SFU is his wife,
Toyin, over alleged N4 billion loan fraud. She allegedly collected the
loan from Access Bank through her firm, DALTRADE.
The SFU has a warrant
for Saraki arrest from a High Court in Lagos because the alleged offence of N21
billion loan fraud against him was committed in Lagos. Commissioner of police
Tunde Ogunshakin of the SFU confirmed the story.
Meanwhile, Saraki, last
nite, said he was ready to appear before the police to answer the allegations
against Saraki’s lawyer, Lawal Rabana, SAN, said that since the police were hell
bent in declaring Saraki wanted, he would, on his own, appear before them.
According to him, Saraki had gone to court hoping that the police would
respect the court having submitted to the jurisdiction.
“Now that the
police have made it clear that they do not have respect for the judiciary, Dr.
Saraki will appear before the court,” he said.
Rabana said that Saraki
was not on the run and had no cause to run as a distinguished person.
however did not specify the day Saraki will appear before the police.
