Jigawa State chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Ado Sani Kiri, has debunked the allegations that the state government masterminded the arrest of former Governor Sule Lamido and his sons by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, describing it as a callous and unfounded allegation.
Kiri, who reacted against the allegation while interacting with journalists in Babura, the hometown of Governor Badaru Abubakar, said his party had no hand whatsoever in the arrest of the former governor.
According to him, APC has not even filed any petition against the embattled former governor, adding that Lamido’s travail began in 2012 when he led some governors to form new PDP and betrayed former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He said since that time, the PDP-led Federal government started witch hunting him to the extent that two of his sons were arrested and charged with money laundering by a Federal High Court sitting in Kano where the first son, Aminu Sule Lamido, was convicted, having been found guilty of 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?”, he queried.
