The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has tendered fresh evidence against the former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido and his two sons, Aminu and Mustapha, in order to establish the money laundering charge it had brought against the family in July.

The anti-graft agency on Wednesday, October 21, tendered before the Federal High Court in Abuja, details of bank accounts that were allegedly used by the accused persons to siphon public funds,

When Lamido, his sons and an accomplice, Wada Abubakar, were first arrested on July 9 in Kano, the EFCC had slammed them with a 28-count charge. They were later re-arraigned on September 22.

Now, they are facing 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.
