EFCC Re-arrests Former Jigawa Governor Lamido And Sons, Set For Trial In Kano



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has rearrested a former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, and his two sons — Aminu and Mustapha — over N1.3 billion fraud.

Reports has it that the Lamidos were moved to Kano in preparation for their arraignment in court on Thursday.

Lamido’s sons were earlier arrested in Kano and flown to Abuja in November 2013 while their father enjoyed immunity as the Jigawa State governor.

The now ex-governor surrendered himself to the commission at the end of his tenure on June 15.

They were accused of using their positions to siphon Jigawa State funds.

The spokesperson for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the arrest of the former governor.
