Buhari In Action: Lamido & Sons Remanded In Prison

KANO—A Federal High Court, sitting in Kano, yesterday, ordered former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, and his two sons, Aminu and Mustapha, accused of fraud, remanded in prison custody in Kano till September 28.

The former governor is facing a 28-count charge alongside his two sons, and one Wada Abubakar in connection with alleged corruption and money laundering that amounted to over N1.35 billion.

Lamido who was arraigned for receiving N1.35 billion kickback from a government contractor was shocked and could not believe his ears after the judge turned down his bail application and ordered him remanded.

Immediately the court rose and the Deputy Chief Registrar of Federal High Court, Mr Solomon Akpedah ushered the former governor and his two sons into a waiting van for a journey to Kano central prison, Lamido exclaimed saying: “You mean I am now a prisoner”? The Deputy Chief Registrar, however, tried to calm him down saying “No sir, you are not a prisoner”.
The alleged fraud money was allegedly paid into accounts controlled by the governor and his sons.

Delivering a ruling, Justice Evelyn Anyadike ordered that the four accused persons be remanded in a Kano Prison because the EFCC said they lacked enough facilities to accommodate them.

She rejected the pleas of defence counsel, Effiong Effiong, SAN, that the accused be kept in EFCC custody, saying the commission had complained of inadequate facilities.

Justice Anyadike said: “The case is hereby adjourned for hearing till September 28, while the four accused persons are to be remanded in prison custody in Kano”.

I know you are not asking me, but it is real @Lamido. You are now a prisoner.

It is easier to become a prisoner than to become a governor, at least in a sane environment, a small crime makes you a prisoner. It is also easier to fall from grace than to rise up.

Many good Nigerians cannot rise up because the system holds them back but where they are at the moment is where you are joining them at ground zero.

But Buhari should not concentrate his effort in the north only.

Lamido, you are not only a prisoner, you are also a prison tenant. Infact, you deserve to be stoned to death.

All Buhari is trying to do is to witchhunt PDP memebers and supporters. Where are the known criminal in APC, ex governors and buhari financiers? I guess they are dining with buhari as we speaks.
