Reports reaching us from Kano State indicate that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested one of the sons of the Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido.

The governor’s son, Aminu Sule Lamido, was arrested by officials of the Commission at the Mallam Aminu Kano international Airport, Kano, Wednesday, on his way to Egypt.

He was reportedly arrested on suspicions of money laundering.
