The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) has reportedly invited Senate President Bukola Saraki‘s wife, Toyin Saraki, and late former President Umaru Yar’Adua‘s daughter, Zaina Dakingari, for questioning.
According to Punch, Saraki will be questioned over alleged shady contracts awarded during her husband’s tenure as governor of Kwara State. Dakingari, who is also the wife of a former Kebbi state governor, will be interrogated over alleged misappropriation of N2 billion state funds.
The report further states:
Toyin Saraki was said to be under probe in relation to several contracts executed by companies said to be linked to her while her husband held sway as the Kwara governor.
A source at the EFCC, who confided in our correspondent in Abuja, said, “The commission has invited the wives of two former state governors, Toyin Saraki and Zaiba Dakingari.
“Dakingari was supposed to have appeared before the commission on Wednesday (yesterday) but she sent a message that she was outside the country and would honour the invitation on July 27, 2015.
She is to provide an explanation in relation to N2 billion state funds.
The commission is expecting Saraki on July 28, 2015. The exact amount of money involved in her matter is not stated for now but she is to be quizzed in relation to various contracts executed in Kwara State when her husband was governor of the state.”
