The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) may be forced to administer the lie detector test on detained Senator Shehu Sani and the Chairman/ CEO of ASD Motors, Alhaji Sani Dauda over the alleged $24,000 bribe allegation against the human rights activist.
The Nation reports that the EFCC is considering polygraph option because both the Senator and the businessman maintained parallel positions during their interrogations by detectives.
Also, it was gathered that while the businessman insisted that. Sani extorted $24,000 from him, the embattled Senator said he only had car purchase transactions with ASD Motors.
The businessman is yet to accept alleged overtures to withdraw his petition against the Senator.
The lie detector test may be carried out after the planned interrogation of the businessman’s wife tomorrow.
Sani’s alleged offence attracts a two-three-year jail term if found guilty.
According to Wikipedia, “a polygraph, popularly referred to as a lie detector test, is a device or procedure that measures and records several physiological indicators such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and skin conductivity while a person is asked and answers a series of questions.”
