Nyako Surrenders To EFCC
SAN FRANCISCO, June 02, (THEWILL) – A former Governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako, Monday turned himself in to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja and was questioned for several hours on allegations of graft and money laundering during his tenure as Governor.
Nyako had fled Nigeria for Europe to avoid arrest after he was declared wanted by the anti-graft agency following his impeachment by the Adamawa State House of Assembly on allegations of graft and misappropriation of state funds.
Local reports said the former governor who returned to Nigeria over the weekend after more than 4 months in self-exile, arrived the EFCC Wuse II Abuja headquarters at about 10.am.
THEWILL could not confirm whether his son, Abdulazeez Murtala-Nyako, who was also declared wanted by the agency, turned himself in as well.
