EFCC Declares Former Adamawa Governor Nyako & Son Wanted Over Money Laundering



Gov.-Murtala-Nyako Bella Naija

Murtala Nyako

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has declared Murtala Nyako, the former governor of Adamawa and his son, Abdul-Aziz wanted over allegations of conspiracy, stealing, abuse of office and money laundering.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesman of EFCC.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that on June 2014 shortly before Nyako’s impeachment, the EFCC froze the bank account belonging to Adamawa government.

The commission froze the account as a precautionary measure to safeguard the state treasury amidst evidence of looting uncovered by its operatives.

The operatives had alleged massive looting of the treasury by top officials of the government under Nyako, a development that led to the arrest and interrogation of key officials of the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    yeye EFCC. do they have substantial evidence to convict him.
    this is what they like to do. they go and arrest a politician without evidence. at the end of the day, there’s no conviction. the politician walks away free.

    yeye EFCC.
