Nyako Fled Nigeria In Fear Of Extrajudicial Action By Jonathan Administration – Aide

Murtala-NyakoImpeached Governor of Adamawa State, Vice Admiral Murtala Nyako (retd.), has said he left Nigeria for London last year to avoid “extrajudicial action” by the Goodluck Jonathan-led administration.
Nyako, who returned to Nigeria on May 30, 2014, almost a year after he disappeared and was subsequently declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, is presently undergoing trial alongside his son Senator Abdul-Aziz and two others for N29bn fraud charges.
The ex-governor, who spoke through his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Ahmad Sajoh, told SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday that, “Justice must be done and must be seen to have been done” in the ongoing case filed against him by the EFCC”.
He added, “The APC came for change; it came to ensure that things are done differently. I expect the APC to allow the judiciary to perform their duties.
“Initially, when he left (the country); it was not the judiciary he was running away from. It was the fear of extrajudicial action of the former regime that was operating with impunity. If you remove the impunity from the entire process, it is a welcome thing that anybody that is accused of anything should come and face the law”.
When asked if the ex-governor has confidence in the new administration to ensure justice, Sajoh said “absolutely”.
