Aminu, Son of Jigawa Gov., Sule Lamido, To Remain In Jail For Trying To Smuggle $40,000 Out Of Nigeria

 

Aminu Lamido, eldest son of Jigawa state governor, Sule Lamido, has been remanded in prison custody until Tuesday following his arraignment on Monday at a Federal High Court in Kano on money laundering charges.
Judge Satun Riman ordered him remanded pending his ruling on Lamido’s bail application after he was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Before today, Aminu Lamido had been enjoying administrative bail granted to him by the EFCC since December 13, a day after he was arrested at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport by EFFC operatives for allegedly not declaring $40,000 in his possession on his way to board an Egypt bound flight to Cairo.
