Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has appealed to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to let The Sun Newspaper continue to operate until the resolution of the pending case and in view of the company as an employer.

Sani made the comments on his Twitter page on Sunday in reaction to the reported sealing of the premises of the Sun Newspaper located at 2, Coscharis Street, Kirikiri Industrial Layout, Apapa, Lagos, on Saturday.

He appealed to the EFCC and the AGF to pardon the newspaper especially the staff of the organisation who have been told to keep off the premises.
