EFCC Re-Arraigns Ex-Jigawa Governor, Sons, Others
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has re-arraigned the former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido and his two sons, Aminu and Mustapha, before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday.
The former Governor entered fresh plea to an amended 27-count criminal charge against him by the anti-graft agency.
Mr Lamido and his sons were previously arraigned on July 9 and remanded in prison custody by Trial Justice, Evelyn Anyadike of the Kano division of the High Court over a 28-count charge that bothered on his alleged complicity in money laundering.
Justice Gabriel Kolawole, who entertained the case as a vacation judge, had in his ruling granted Lamido bail on self-recognition owing to his status as a former Governor.
The court, however, ordered his sons and their alleged accomplice, Wada Abubakar, to deposit 25 million Naira each.
