Investigations revealed that operatives of the anti-graft agency picked up the former governor and his two sons,Mustapha and Aminu, in Abuja on Tuesday.
It was gathered that the anti-graft
agency picked up the governor and
his sons in the early hours today.
It was learnt that EFCC detectives flew the suspects to Kano by 2.30pm in preparation for their arraignment in Kano.
A source in the commission said, “The former Governor of Jigawa State,Alhaji Sule Lamido, and his two sons,Mustapha and Aminu, were arrested this morning by operatives of the commission.
“They were with us for hours before
they were flown to Kano for possible arraignment on Wednesday. They left Abuja Airport around 2.30pm.
“It is most likely that they would be
arraigned tomorrow, that I can tell
you.”
The EFCC had arrested the two sons of the governor in November 2015 over alleged misappropriation of billions of Naira belonging to the Jigawa State Government.

investigating Lamido and his sons,
alleged that billions of state
government funds were traced into
accounts of companies owned and
operated by the governor and his two sons.
Head of Media and Publicity of the
EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren,

governor and his two sons to our
correspondent on the telephone on
