Ex-Jigawa governor's son loses appeal

07 December 2015, 17:12

Jigawa - The Court of Appeal sitting in Kaduna has dismissed the appeal of Aminu Sule Lamido, the son of former Jigawa State governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido, against the decision of the Kano Federal High Court, which found him guilty of the charge of money laundering.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) brought the charges against him.

Aminu (34) was arrested in December 2012 by at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport on his way to Egypt.

He was arrested for failure to declare the sum of $40 000 in the Customs Currency Declaration Form after initially declaring the statutory $10 000 to the Nigeria Custom Service.

Aminu, a graduate of Mass a Communication from the Bayero University Kano, was subsequently arraigned in February 2013, on one count charge of false declaration of foreign currency.

Aminu was tried and consequently convicted in July this year and ordered to forfeit 25 percent of the undeclared sum.

Dissatisfied with the judgment of the trial court, Aminu filed an appeal at the Court of Appeal, Kaduna Division, praying the Appellate court to set aside the judgment of the lower court.

The Appellate court in its judgment delivered by Justice Abiru upheld the decision of the lower court and resolved all issues raised against the appellant.
