Meanwhile, Saraki in a statement explained that he was not arrested but on his own volition went to the EFCC’s office.

Part of his statement read: “It would be recalled that following the order of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on the Fundamental Human Rights case filed by Dr. Saraki during the period of the former chairman of the EFCC which precluded the commission from investigating the former senate President until the matter is dispensed with, the commission at the last hearing on July 14, 2021, pleaded with the judge that the order was preventing them from doing.
