Umar had on Wednesday discharged and acquitted Senate President Bukola Saraki of all 18 charges levelled against him by the federal government.

On Saturday, Professor Odekunle made the call to investigate him in Abuja at a programme organised by the National Association of Seadogs where he expressed his disagreement at the manner corruption is being fought by the presidency.

The Professor of Criminology pointed out that Umar’s integrity was in doubt.

He said, “It is said that he who comes to equity must come with clean hands. In this regard, I ask, what were the details and the resolution of the EFCC matter on Danladi Umar’s bribery case? I don’t know, I’m just asking. Does the DSS possess any information about Danladi Umar on the use or abuse of hard drugs?

“Is there any record that Danladi Umar had been driving and crashing his car under the influence? These are questions that I don’t know the answers to but I want you to investigate.

Professor Odekunle also has hit out at the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), questioning the latter’s commitment to the anti-graft war.
