Jigawa Governors Son Arrested For Money Laundering.

According to Sahara Reporters, one of the sons of the Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, was arrested around 12 midnight at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport as he prepared to board an Egypt Air flight to Cairo.

Aminu Lamido was flagged after he declared $10,000 in his possession to agents of of the Nigerian customs at the airport. However further checks  by agents of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)  at the airport revealed that he  was carrying a lot of money far higher than was disclosed.
 Custom officials at the airport told SaharaReporters that Mr. Aminu travels frequently with huge wads of cash ostensibly to launder money on behalf of his father and some officials of the state.
EFCC  spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren  confirmed the arrest to SaharaReporters,  saying that EFCC office in Kano will charge the governor's son to court as soon as "practicable". Lets hope this one doesn't enter voice mail.
