Murtala Nyako: Court okays ex-governor’s arrest over alleged N15bn fraud

The Abuja Federal High Court on Sunday, June 14 failed to stop the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from arresting Adamawa State ex-governor Murtala Nyako over alleged siphoning of over N15billion from the state’s treasury.

The anti-graft agency maintains that Nyako used his son, Abdul Azizi, and other top officials of the state government to loot public funds.

EFCC had declared the former governor and his son wanted after they refused to honour the agency’s invitations. Azizi was later arrested in Gombe on February 14 by the Commissions’ operatives.

Nyako had filed a motion ex-parte in which he sought for an interim order of injunction against all the security agencies in Nigeria.
