The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has granted administrative bail to Governor Sule Lamido’s two sons, Aminu and Mustapha, who were arrested last week in Kano on allegations of money laundering.
Aminu and Mustapha were reportedly arrested in connection with huge transactions involving the movement of Jigawa State funds into accounts of companies in which both of them and their father, the governor, are believed to have interest. The amount involved, according to the State Security Service, SSS, is about N10 billion.
Gov. Lamido has described the development as a political witch-hunt.
