EFCC arrest son of former Adamawa state gov, N15b allegedly found in his company accounts

Two weeks after he and his father, former Adamawa state governor, Murtala Nyako were declared wanted by the EFCC for financial impropriety while in government, the operatives of the EFCC this morning arrested Abdul-Aziz Nyako, the son of Gov Nyako in Gombe state. His arrest comes after N15 billion meant for the state was found in accounts of 5 companies owned by him.
Read the EFCC press statement on his arrest below after the cut...



Barely two weeks after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, declared former Adamawa State Governor, Murtala Nyako and his son, Abdul-Aziz, wanted, operatives of the anti- graft agency, this morning arrested the younger Nyako in Gombe, Gombe State. He was immediately flown to Abuja where he is currently being grilled by a crack team of detectives who had been working on the Adamawa investigation for several months.
Abdul-Aziz, who was declared wanted by the EFCC in the case of stealing, abuse of office and money laundering, is currently telling investigators all he knows about illicit funds traced to companies where he has interest.
Specifically, he will have to explain how over N15billion funds belonging to Adamawa State was laundered into the accounts of five companies owned by him-  Blue Opal Nigeria limited, Crust Energy Nigeria Limited, Blue Ribbon Multilinks Limited, Tower Assets Management Limited and Blue Ribbon Bureau De Change.
The funds was funned into the accounts of the companies from Adamawa State accounts domiciled in a new generation bank by the account officer who incidentally is the manager and an in-law to ex-governor Nyako.
The manager claimed he transferred the funds through verbal instruction from the former governor  for purposes which are not stated.
Investigations revealed that from 2007 to 2011 within Nyako’s tenure in office, before he was impeached in 2014, he had directed that all of the state owned accounts domiciled in various banks be transferred to the new generation bank .
Abdul-Aziz’s company, Blue Opal, is said to own, among other investments in Nigeria, an estate  in Abuja, while his father’s account officer owns several properties and investments scattered around Abuja, Yola and Kano.
Former governor Nyako is still on the run.

Where has EFCC been all this while? Did GEJ suddenly wake them up and unleash them on a selected target to give some makeover to his corruption-tarnished image especially now that it has made him so unpopular locally and internationally even on the heels of a general election.Notwithstanding If this Adamawa state gov's son is found guilty he should be prosecuted, but EFCC should also proceed to arrest/rearrest and try all those whose corruption cases were swept under the carpet (NNPC, Subsidy scam,Faruk,Oduah , etc).There should be no sacred cows if this EFCC move must be taken serioisly.Otherwise this fire brigade move will not amend GEJ's already tartarred image but will remain simply a smoke screen.

Why the sudden seriousness by Goodluck Jonathan's EFCC? Because election is approaching and he all of a sudden wants to pretend like he's doing something....but these people have been embezzling money all this while with no ramification. If it took the coming election for him to sit up and fix his administration, then what happens when the elections are over? Back to the way it was....

Efcc knows all these. All state govs do this. Ministers judges and all own companies dat dey use to launder cash. Funny i actually applied for a job at blue ribbon.

Anonymous said...

I can assure you guys that this thief will not go to jail. The family will settle efcc and all the judges. If you are stealing in Nigeria, just steal billions and you will not go to jail. Is this guy different or better than the yahoo boys the efcc and the criminal Nigeria judges are sending to jail? Look that country is sick. If this guy don't go to jail for stealing those billions,it will be too bad.

That's a very good move by the EFCC. Nonetheless, they shouldn't make it selected justice. Other corrupt public officers should be prosecuted too, be it pdp, apc and even the presidency. All these 'gragra' we are seeing now have political undertone. Did these guys just stole the money? We are waiting for the outcome of EFCC against FFK, and yet to know what will be done to other thieves in the president's party

E-F-C-C, pls move quickly to FASHOLA case and expose all his atrocities. performance is definitely not an excuse for CORRUPTION! the scare crow called BABATUNDE FASHOLA has stolen so much fro lagos. the truth,when revealed, will jolt a lot of blind APC followers. As for me, whether u are in PDP or APC, GOD WILL CONTINUE TO EXPOSE THE GREEDY, CORRUPT LEADERS. they are destiny killers crippling the economy.
