The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has arrested two sons of Gov. Sule Lamido of Jigawa for allegedly laundering N11 billion.

The spokesman for the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, who confirmed the arrest of the duo to newsmen in Kano on Friday, gave their names as Aminu and Mustapha.

He said they were arrested on Thursday night in Kano by operatives of the EFCC in connection with money laundering. The suspects had since been flown to Abuja for further interrogation.

It would be recalled that the eldest son of the governor, Aminu, was earlier arrested by the EFCC on Dec. 11, 2012 at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport for money laundering to the tune of $50,000.

He was convicted but not sentenced by a Federal High Court in Kano on July 12.
