Ex-Governor Lamido – The former Jigawa state governor, Sule Lamido, who was remanded in prison custody together with his sons over money laundering allegations, has expressed shock over the court’s decision.


The former governor, who, alongside his two sons Aminu and Mustapha, is facing a 28-count charge over alleged corruption and money laundering that amounts to over N1.35billion, was on Thursday remanded by a Federal High Court, sitting in Kano, till September 28.

Vanguard reports that immediately the court rose and the deputy chief registrar, Solomon Akpedah ushered the former governor and his two sons into a waiting van for a journey to Kano central prison, Lamido exclaimed saying: “You mean I am now a prisoner?”.

The deputy chief registrar’s efforts to pacify him did not, however, yield much efforts.

Justice Evelyn Anyadike, after rejecting pleas of the defence counsel, Effiong Effiong, ordered that the four accused be remanded in a Kano prison because the EFCC said they lacked enough facilities to accommodate them.

She said: “The case is hereby adjourned for hearing till September 28, while the four accused persons are to be remanded in prison custody in Kano.”

“The case will be handed over to a vacation judge to listen to the bail application while the judiciary goes on vacation next Monday.”
