EFCC Arrests Jigawa State Governor's son for money Laundering
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC is believed to have arrested one of the sons of the Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido.
Reports say the governor’s son, Aminu Sule Lamido, was arrested by officials of the Commission at the Mallam Aminu Kano international Airport, Kano, Wednesday, on his way to Egypt.
He was reportedly arrested on suspicions of money laundering.
Sources at the Airport said Aminu declared that he had only ten thousand dollars on him, but further search and scrutiny by the anti graft officials revealed that he had a large undisclosed amount.
Efforts to reach both the spokespersons of the governor of Jigawa state, Umar Kyari and the EFCC Wilson Uwujaren were unsuccessful.
