Money laundering: EFCC tenders evidence against Lamido, 2 sons

By Ikechukwu Nnochiri

ABUJA – Determined to establish the money laundering charge it slammed against the former Governor of Jigawa State and his two sons, Aminu and Mustapha, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Wednesday, tendered before the Federal High Court in Abuja, details of bank accounts it said were used by the accused persons to siphon public funds.

Though Lamido and his sons were initially docked in Kano on July 9 alongside their alleged accomplice, Wada Abubakar, on a 28-count charge, they were subsequently re-arraigned by the anti-graft agency in Abuja on September 22.

They are now answering to an amended 27-count criminal charge bordering on corruption, money laundering, breach ‎of trust and illegal diversion of public funds to the tune of N1.35billion.
