By Ismail Auwal

A Federal High Court in Abuja has ruled that a former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, has a case to answer in the N712 million fraud charges brought against him.

In the ruling, Ijeoma Ojukwu, the trial judge, dismissed Mr Lamido’s no-case-submission and ordered him to enter his defence.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) agency is prosecuting the former governor alongside two of his sons – Aminu Lamido and Mustapha Lamido;
Aminu Wada Abubakar, two companies Bamaina Holdings Ltd and Speeds International Ltd for allegedly defrauding the state.

He allegedly abused his position as governor between 2007 and 2015 by awarding contracts to companies where he had interest, using his two sons as fronts.
