The Abuja Federal High Court on Sunday, June 14 failed
to stop the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission
(EFCC) from arresting Adamawa State ex-governor
Murtala Nyako over alleged siphoning of over N15billion
from the state’s treasury.
The anti-graft agency maintains that Nyako used his
son, Abdul Azizi , and other top officials of the state
government to loot public funds.
EFCC had declared the former governor and his son
wanted after they refused to honour the agency’s
invitations. Azizi was later arrested in Gombe on
February 14 by the Commissions’ operatives.
Nyako had filed a motion ex-parte in which he sought
for an interim order of injunction against all the
security agencies in Nigeria.
