Reports from Kano suggest that Aminu Lamido, son of the Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, was arrested in the wee hours of Wednesday morning at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport on his way to board an Egypt Air flight to Cairo.

The Governor’s son had declared $10,000 in his possession to the Nigerian customs at the airport but inquiries by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the airport revealed that he was carrying more than the $10,000 he disclosed, hence his arrest.

He is to be arraigned on Tuesday December 18 in Kano by the EFCC authorities.
