EFCC arrests former Jigawa State Governor, Saminu Turaki

A former governor of Jigawa State, Senator Saminu Turaki was this afternoon, July 4, 2017 arrested by agents of EFCC.

He was picked up at the venue of the public presentation of a book on Brigadier Zakariya Maimalari, the first regular combatant officer in the Nigerian Army, in Abuja.

Before the arrest, EFCC has had to declare Turaki wanted for failing to present himself for trial since 2011 on 36 counts corruption charge before the Federal High Court, Dutse.

The court had issued a warrant directing the Inspector General of Police or his officers and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to arrest Saminu Turaki and bring him before the court.
Justice S. Yahuza gave the order after Turaki consistently failed to attend trial.

But attempts to execute the warrant failed as Turaki remained elusive.

On May 19, 2016 operatives of the Commission acting on a tip-off had stormed the 16 Denis Osadebey Street Asokoro, Abuja home of the former governor but he slipped through their hands.
Turaki faces multiple charges bordering on criminal conspiracy, stealing, money laundering and misappropriation of public funds.

at the end of it all, it is either they don't get a conviction or the prison sentence would be less than 1 year in prison. there is a bank manager that stole N200 million and got a

I am sure you guys are one of Otunba's acquaintances. Why are you envious of his lifestyle. He does not owe anyone a favour. Once you have money you can spend it as you want to. Why hang around him looking for handouts?

Anon 7.35 for your information everybody needs an "handout" if that what you call it. Lousy Otuba used late Audu's contact to penetrate people why is it a big deal for him to do same if they not begging him for money? Instead all he now does is talk down on people that even patronize his brothel.. who gave you the otunba tittle please? #thief#stoleAuduMoney#asslicker#imustbelongorIDie#

Anonymous 13:33 you see the problem is that people want to "arrive" at the same time. This is Otunba's time. Your time will come too. But the test will be how you will behave when your time comes. I hope you will be good to everyone else they might dirty your image on the Internet the way you are trying now to tarnish otunba's image because he did not give you "contacts". Life is a journey, there are different bus stops on the way to our respective destinations.

Anon 18:13 how could otunba have stolen Audu's money? Did Audu know he was going to die on that day? So he packed his money and gave Otunba to keep in case he drops dead? Are you making any sense? First you talk about "contacts", now you are talking about money. Pitch your tent and pick one or the other. Stop throwing darts to see which one sticks.

Anon 19.23 only Otunba understands what he did because Audu trusted him to keep some money which he never refund back to his family... he has know loyalty of whatsoever to anyone unless the very rich powerful man.. he probably thinks Turaki still as some money that's why he was hanging around him lol...#fakeman#terribleHumanBeing#
