PDP Is Behind Lamido, Sons Prosecution- APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it has no hand in the arrest of former governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido and his sons by the Economic and Financial Crimes Control (EFCC).

According to Ado Sani Kiri, chairman of the Jigawa state APC denied allegations that the state government masterminded the arrest of former governor and his sons, describing it as a callous and unfounded allegation.

The APC leader, who reacted against the allegation while interacting with journalists in Babura, the hometown of Governor Badaru Abubakar, insisted that the party was in no way involved in the arrest of the former governor.

According to Vanguard, Kiri absolved the APC of any blame, noting that the party has not even filed any petition against the embattled former governor, while recalling also that Lamido’s travail began in 2012 when he led some governors  to form new PDP and betrayed former president, Goodluck Jonathan.

The APC chieftain stated that the PDP-led federal government had since started witch-hunting the ex-governor to the extent that two of his sons were arrested and charged  with money laundering.

"To say APC has hands in the arrest of Alhaji Lamido by some disgruntled elements is mere daydreaming. What connects APC with that case?", Kiri fumed.

Lamido, who was arrested alongside his two sons over charges of corruption, was remanded in prison custody before being granted bail.
