A Federal High Court in Abuja has restrained the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Department of State Services (DSS) and other agencies involved in the probe of Senate President Bukola Saraki over allegations of money laundering from going further.

The EFCC had said it would probe Saraki’s earnings between 2003 and 2011 when he was governor of Kwara state.

The commission reportedly seized some of his houses in the Ikoyi area of Lagos.

However, on Friday Saraki filed two separate fundamental rights enforcement suits before the court to challenge the the action of the EFCC.
