Jigawa Youths Protest Arrest Of Lamido’s Sons By The EFCC


Thousands of Jigawa youths under the aegis of National Volunteer for Lamido 2015 stormed the streets of Dutse, the Jigawa State capital, protesting the arrest of two sons of Jigawa state governor, Sule Lamido, by officials of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, last week.

Mustapha and Aminu Sule Lamido, were arrested last Thursday at their residences in Kano for alleged N10 billion money laundering, with efforts by Governor Lamido and his associates to see that the EFCC released the two accused on bail proving so far abortive.

Addressing a crowd in Dutse, state coordinator of National Volunteer for Lamido 2015, Malam Musa Gambo Guri, said the arrest was political, and aimed at tarnishing the image of the governor.

This, however, according to him, would not deter them from supporting Lamido to vie for the office of the president in 2015.
