Jigawa Governor's Son Arrested For Money-Laundering At Kano Airport by free2ryhme: 12:26pm On Dec 12, 2012



One of the sons of the Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, was arrested around 12 midnight at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport as he prepared to board an Egypt Air flight to Cairo.



Aminu Lamido was flagged after he declared $10,000 in his possession to agents of of the Nigerian customs at the airport. However further checks by agents of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the airport revealed that he was carrying a lot of money far higher than was disclosed.



Custom officials at the airport told SaharaReporters that Mr. Aminu travels frequently with huge wads of cash ostensibly to launder money on behalf of his father and some officials of the state.



EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren confirmed the arrest to SaharaReporters, saying that EFCC office in Kano will charge the governor's son to court as soon as practicable.

Why rush to the press without verifying how much he had on him. I see this case being swept under the carpet as fast as it came to light.

These EFCC chaps hv bn on a row since August since they startd implementing d new Anti-money laudering law....and i bliv dat they wud do much beta if d Judiciary handled corruptn cases more swiftly dan they do presently. Let d CJN just fulfil her promise to appoint Special Judges for Anti-corruption Cases, so dat cases can be decided say within a yr and so dat these powerful 'thiefs' and dier Lawyer frnds wud no longer tk advantage of d loopholes in d Judicial process ala adjournment etc

Half Information
Half Baked Law Enforcer

The game of cover up has started.

Why is the amount not mentioned?
Why is the picture not provided?

Atleast we saw the pictures of the former......

You can't just trust Nigerians for anything.

Same of the same.

....and this is a country where more than 80% of graduates are jobless, where many graduates have not held a 1,000 naira note for a long time, where our beautiful sisters have turned into professional ladies of easy virtues just to eke out a livelihood, where justice is trampled underfoot! At the end, the 'the funky mallam' will be released and life goes on! undecided**tomakint hisses and passes by**

Nothing much will come out of the case, even with the extant money laundering laws, he will only forfeit the undeclared amount to the Federal government and allowed to go as a first time offender.
