Alleged N712m Fraud: EFCC Arraigns Ex-gov Lamido, Sons, Others In Court

The Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja on Monday, presided over by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu dismissed the no case submission filed by a former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, who is being prosecuted by the EFCC on a 37-count amended charge bordering on abuse of office and money laundering to the tune of N712m. He is to open his defense on November 8-11, 2022.

Ex-governor Lamido was arraigned alongside two of his sons – Aminu Lamido and Mustapha Lamido; Aminu Wada Abubakar, Bamaina Holdings Ltd and Speeds International Ltd for allegedly defrauding the state.

He allegedly abused his position as governor between 2007 and 2015 by awarding contracts to companies where he had interest, using his two sons as fronts.
