Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has approached a Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja to seek an order relisting his suit filed against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and others.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Justice Inyang Ekwo had on January 25, struck out two separate suits filed by Saraki against the anti-graft agency and others for lack of diligent prosecution.
The ex-Senate president had filed the suits marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/507/2019 and FHC/ABJ/CS/508/2019 at the FHC on May 10, 2019.
In the suits, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Inspector-General of Police and State Security Service are 1st to 3rd defendants respectively.
Others are EFCC, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission and Code of Conduct Bureau as 4th to 6th respondents respectively.
The ex-senate president had filed the suits following the EFCC’s decision in 2019 to probe Saraki’s earnings between 2003 and 2011 when he was governor of Kwara.
The anti-graft commission was reported to have seized some of his houses in the Ikoyi area of Lagos then and Saraki filed the suits to enforce his fundamental rights.
But the suits were struck out by the judge.
