TRAPPED! Witness Exposes Lamido and His Sons Big FRAUD In Court

The trial of the former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, and his two sons, Aminu Sule Lamido and Mustapha Sule Lamido, has commenced. The accused were charged with 27 counts of corruption, money laundering, and illegal diversion of funds understood to have totaled N1.35billion.

In an effort to strengthen its case, the EFCC submitted the details of several bank accounts allegedly used by the ex-Governor and his sons to siphon public funds before the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The EFCC presented four witnesses. They are:
Longji Tupkop, Kabir Mashi, Mustapha Baba, and Onyiche Agbaghara. These witnesses were brought by the EFCC because of their specific knowledge of bank accounts connected to the embattled former Governor Sule Lamido and his two sons.

Mr. Tupkop, a Relationship Manager at United Bank of Africa, highlighted the clearing of several checks by companies the EFCC alleged are owned by former Governor Lamido. While Mr. Mashi, a Regional Manager at Unity Bank Plc, Kano North, under pressure from the prosecution counsel, presented documents pertaining to the opening of several accounts at his bank belonging to these same companies. Finally, Mr. Agbaghara, an employee of Keystone Bank, detailed the opening of several more company accounts at his bank.

At the conclusion of the witness’ testimonies, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, who was presiding over the case, adjourned the case until November 24th and 25th.
