EFCC arrests Gov. Lamido and his two sons


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has rearrested former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, and his two sons — Aminu and Mustapha.
The case invilving the Lamidos is a long running battle with the EFCC arresting and releasing the sons while the father was still governor and had immunity. The case which took prominence at a time when then Gov Lamido was openly flirting with the idea of joining the APC, was suddenly dumped when he opted to remain in the PDP and support then Pres. Goodluck Jonathan.
The allegations against the Lamidos has to do with an alleged fraud totalling N1.3 billion.
According to reports, the Lamidos were moved to Kano in preparation for their arraignment in court either Wednesday or Thursday.
The arrest of the Lamidos was confirmed by EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren.
