An EFCC source said Sani was arrested for collecting money from a businessman, promising to pass it on to Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman  of the anti-graft agency.

TheCable could not independently verify the claim of extortion. The ex-lawmaker’s line was engaged when TheCable attempted to reach him several times on Tuesday evening.

Wilson Uwujaren, spokesman of the EFCC, declined comments on the issue but Cole Michael, an aide of the former lawmaker, said it is untrue that Sani was arrested.

The former lawmaker represented Kaduna central in the upper legislative chamber of the national assembly between 2011 and 2015.

On Monday, he made the headlines for saying Nigerians will experience more hardship under President Muhammadu Buhari in 2020.

He had accused the current administration of blaming past governments for the situation of the country, saying things will not improve even if Buhari is given additional 50 years to rule.
