EFCC arrests former Governor Sule Lamido and his 2 sons

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has re-arrested former Jigawa State governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido, and his two sons — Aminu and Mustapha — over N1.3 billion fraud.

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

A source at the commission also said the former governor and his sons were moved to Kano, the Kano State capital, on Tuesday, preparatory to their trial in court later this week.

Mr. Lamido’s sons had earlier been 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.
