This may not be the best of times for former Senate President, David Mark. The ranking lawmaker is currently being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged money laundering offence.
Saturday Sun gathered that the probe of the former number three citizen started soon after.....
President Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in on May 29. A reliable source within the anti-graft agency disclosed that the investigation borders “on a huge inflow into a bank account linked to Senator Mark, which was immediately flagged as suspicious transaction.”
“We have done a lot of work on the case but tracing the source and the purpose of the huge inflow which runs into several millions are posing some challenges. We were sure of filing charges against the Senator but we are yet to get the final instruction”, the source who refused to give further details stated.
It was gathered that operatives handling the case had scheduled interrogation of Senator Mark as the last stage of the investigation but the former Senate President was already aware of the development. “He must have been alerted by his bankers from whom we have demanded some documents in relation to the transaction”, another source in the anti-graft agency added.
