Shehu Sani Dares EFCC To Make 'doctored' Audio Tapes Public
By Iwedi Ojinmah 1 month ago
Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th National Assembly, has challenged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to release the audiotapes that they claim prove he is an extortionist.
He says the tapes of a telephone conversation between him and Alhaji Sani Dauda was relating to the purchase of a Peugeot car.
He further promised to make available the full audio of the telephone conversation with the chairman of ASD Motors, when court proceedings commence.
His Special Adviser, Suleiman Ahmed, in a statement yesterday explained that the audio the EFCC presented in Hausa language was doctored to malign him.
“There was nowhere the audio indicated that Senator Sani was given money.
"The $25,000 in the tape was the amount the senator paid for a Peugeot 508 of which an invoice was given as evidence to the EFCCRelated: Teen FCMB Toilet Thief Nabbed Trying To Flee With N340K
“The tape borders on Shehu Sani calling on ASD to support his political ambition and telling detailing the political persecution he was facing under Nasir el-Rufai and how hired assassins were sent after Sani.”
Ahmed went on to share that the audio conversation also covered how Sani intended to go for medical surgery in Germany and wooing ASD to abandon his other political choices and support him.
He further informed:
“In the audio, it was Sani who was making a statement to give ASD money to purchase a car at his shop and was never for a bribe,” he stated, insisting that the audio presented before the senator by the anti-graft agency was a disjointed piece of manipulated voices arranged to achieve their desired goals.
“Almost 70 per cent of the content of the audio has been tampered with, and nowhere in the audio was it proved that Sani was given money to bribe the Chief justice of Nigeria (CJN) or EFCC officials. We shall release our full version of all the conversation when the matter goes to court.
The EFCC/accuser audio is a duet of misleading and misinforming rhythm and conversation. We reject the EFCC Hausa recording studio work of fiction.”
The EFCC has yet to respond.
