The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, yesterday, arrested immediate past Jigawa Governor, Sule Lamido with his two sons over graft allegations.

We learnt that the former governor and his two sons- Aminu and Mustapha-were picked up in Abuja on Tuesday and taken to Kano where they are expected to be arraigned today before the Federal High Court there.

A source in EFCC said that the governor and his sons would be charged with a-24-count charge bordering on money laundering and related offences.

The commission claims Lamido used his sons to transfer state funds into companies in which they had interest and also received kickback to the tune of N1.3 billion from a local road building company, but did not say the job was not done.

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the arrest and movement of Lamido and his sons to Kano but did not disclose why they were moved to Kano and not Jigawa where the alleged offence took place.

Two weeks ago Lamido had to cut short his overseas vacation to honour EFCC invitation over the same case.

He had reported to the EFCC agents who questioned him on what he knew about the alleged fraud while in office. Lamido, however, denied allegations that he pilfered state funds and was granted administrative bail.
