EFCC arrests Murtala Nyako’s son, Abdul-Aziz

AbdulAzeez Murtala Nyako

Two weeks after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, declared former Adamawa State Governor, Murtala Nyako and his son, Abdul-Aziz, wanted, operatives of the anti- graft agency, Friday morning arrested the younger Nyako in Gombe, Gombe State.

A statement by the spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, said he was immediately flown to Abuja, where he is currently being grilled by a crack team of detectives who had been working on the Adamawa investigation for several months.

Abdul-Aziz, who was declared wanted by the EFCC in the case of stealing, abuse of office and money laundering, is currently being interrogated over alleged illicit funds traced to companies in which he has interest.

Specifically, he is being asked to explain how over N15billion funds belonging to Adamawa State was allegedly laundered into the accounts of five companies said to owned by him- Blue Opal Nigeria Limited, Crust Energy Nigeria Limited, Blue Ribbon Multilinks Limited, Tower Assets Management Limited and Blue Ribbon Bureau De Change.

The funds was allegedly funnelled into the accounts of the companies from Adamawa state accounts domiciled in a new generation bank by the account officer who incidentally is the manager and an in-law to Ex-governor Nyako.

The EFCC said the manager claimed he transferred the funds through verbal instruction from the former governor for purposes that were not stated.

The commission said its investigations revealed that from 2007 to 2011, then Governor Nyako directed that all state-owned accounts domiciled in various banks be transferred to the new generation bank .

Abdul-Aziz’s company, Blue Opal, is said to own, among other investments in Nigeria, an estate in Abuja, while his father’s account officer owns several properties and investments scattered around Abuja, Yola and Kano.

      Agreed but the Nyako guy stole public money.

      • Philip Musa

        Kpataaaaaa!!!! Nyako na complete criminal! All of them in APC are same same. Just imagine what Nigeria would become with those guys in power.

        • yetundeonigbogi

          All of them in PDP are equally criminals. Don’t try to be bias here. Let PDP leave government and you will marvel at the level of graft by PDP officials. Don’t demonise APC and leave PDP.

    • Philip Musa

      APC Criminal!!! So this is the change you’re screaming about??!!! You still have mouth to talk?

      • progress

        Mumu, Gej is doing this because Nyako decamped to APC. After 7years as Gov, Dumbo just realised that Nyako is stealing from his state abi?

        • Philip Musa

          So ask yourself this question; why would a hardened criminal decamp to another party? Want to know why? ‘Cause his ways were about to be exposed, that’s why. And real soon, your hand shall be caught in the cookie jar as well. You’ll see it!!!

      • Wähala

        • Philip Musa

          your father mumu!! Barawo shege banza!!! Look at coal calling diamond black. This is the “Change” that you clowns are clamoring for?

  • Philip Musa

      • Kanoute

        Point is, you guys celebrate any rogue that decamps from PDP(due to unfulfilled political aspirations) and decorate them as ‘change agents’! Hahahaha!

        Now, you see why for the discerning, APC is generally understood to mean Association of-Past-Criminals!!!!!
        HYPOCRITES AND PRETENDERS!!

  • TC

    Till GEJ, Diezani_Alison-Madueke, Stella, Tinubu, IBB, Modu sheriff, Odili etc are brought to book, this boys chasing mosquitoes will not be taken seriously by any being with common sense or human intelligence. Stop the deceit and child’s play. Get serious if you want to be taken seriously, stop the selective justice….

    • Niyi

    • Niyi

      Politics is all about number so they need the number to win election,why did you think PDP are afraid of conducting the election because they know the numbers are not with them anymore ..like a navy officer told a young officer in a parade if someone help and fix you in navy is now your responsibility to improve.APC need the votes of Nigerians and they all Nigeria. Mark you PDP has more the if than APC.

      • Kanoute

        Meehn! Aboki, this your English na die! Ba Turenci ko??
        Hahaha! Abeg, you know yur name is not ‘niyi’! I am not Yoruba, but I know yorubas are well educated. They don’t write jaga-jaga English d way u just did! Abi, u be ‘amazing2012’ brother?? Lol! Haba mallam!
        See yur hypocrisy? So now u know ‘politics is all about numbers’?? When theives, Rapists, paedophiles, con men, etc, we’re decamping to yur Association of Past Criminals, all of u wer jumping up and down. When some of them realised APC was a deadly cult and returned to PDP, you all started calling them names! So, if ‘politics is all about numbers’, WHY HAVE U APC E-ZOMBIES BEEN ACCUSING PDP OF CAMPING THESE PEOPLE??
        The major problem with u APC minions is yur hypocrisy! I even read above where u asked someone ‘why EFCC are just going after him now’? So aboki, if a thief has been stealing for 50yrs without getting caught, you would rather he is released the day he is finally caught since he wsnt caught earlier??
        Chai! Ba ka da hankali!

        • Niyi

          If my write up is not well arrange no problem but the important thing about communication is for other person to understand the message and you did.end of story.

          • Kanoute

            The only message I understood is that you are an illiterate or a quarter-baked graduate, pretending to be ‘niyi’ when you are not..and that when people are in PDP they are theives..but wen they run to APC, they become saints..cos ‘politics is all about numbers’!
            End of discussion…HYPOCRITE!

    • destiny

    • Otile

      APC minions will pretend that this did not happen.

    • TC

      Yep, 14 top class universities graduating geniuses. If every student in Nigeria had an option between those universities or going abroad they’ll definitely chose those 14…..lol, let’s fix the few mediocre ones we have instead of building more. What’s your point?

    • Maria

      Yeye universities built by yeye men… universities that no one knows exist! Can Jonathan and Sambo children attend those useless universities?

  • Tufiakwa

    AP(FEEE)C! Change! Change! Change for the Worse!

  • Niyi

  • Spoken word

    Hippee EFCC is working now go after diezani, adoke and the other corrupt public officials.if you arrest Nyako’s son that is not in government what about the government officials that facilitated the corruption. also EFCC please clarify for us what the difference between corruption and stealing is.

    • Philip Musa

      name the government officials? I can guarantee you they’re all APC!

      • TC

        And PDP too, they won’t pay you enough to retire o! Consider ur unborn generation while you are doing blind loyalty mallam.

      • Spoken word

        Really.stop being stupid.you have a president that says corruption is just stealing and you come here talking nonsense.

  • Sometimes we @ HonsylGlobal weep for this country given the depths it has sunk into under Jonathan. With the type of support for GEJ despite his failures, it is evident that his supporters could not have done a better job, had the DEVIL incarnated in his place.
    In our opinion, GEJ failed principally due to lack of experience while his accolades capitalised on his personal excessive desire for greed to deplete our national patrimony. GEJ is a perfect description of a Politician who promises what he never intended doing. His good intentions are basically in the land of dreams.
    One is ashamed at the level of intelligence displayed by his advisers and Voltrons when they input GEJ as the best President the nation has ever produced. With exchange rate rising from N155 to over N210 to the Dollar, within 3months despite a 5-year global average crude oil price of a USD100 per barrel. daily officially sponsored theft of 400 thousand barrels of crude oil under the militant management of the waterways, diversion of National Income proceeds, Corruption at its uppermost, mass poverty and unemployment, poverty induced crime by youths etc. With all these, we are forced to agree for once, that GEJ remains the greatest President for a Convulsing nation.

  • Arrest Warrant

    If Nyako son is alleged of 15billion wat of ..

    Jonah jang son ?
    All are openly enjoying thier share openly because of thier parental loyalty to GEJ.
    No corrupt leader would be safe in our next government..let them be aware..CHANGE is coming no matter wat they do to object it.

  • Tony

    This is a pure case of witch-hunting

  • Good effort by EFCC. I hope the children of Ali, Alao, Bamanga, Lamido and other untouchables are warming up? There comes definitely a time when there’ll be a pharaoh that knows no Joseph and that time is at hand. Nigerians are not fooled. Our wealth shall be retrieved from all the rogues posing as leaders in this country, God willing. God save Nigeria.
