The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has declared the impeached Governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako, wanted.
PUNCH reported that, leadership of the commission decided to declare Nyako wanted after he failed to honour the commission’s invitations after his removal from office.
Mr. Wilson Uwujaren,Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC, was quoted saying, “Since Nyako, was removed, he has been elusive. So the commission has devised a strategy to declare him wanted”.
A highly placed source at the commission who spoke anonymously was quoted saying, “The former deputy governor was here. He responded to our invitation, he interacted with operatives for some hours. He came around 10am and left 1pm”.
Meanwhile, Nyako’sDirector of Press and Public Affairs, Ahmad Sajoh, in a telephone interview with news correspondents in Abuja said, “They (the then government of the day) set up General Olusegun Obasanjo, accused him of a coup, jailed him unjustifiably and he later came out of prison to become President; they orchestrated the impeachment of Ayo Fayose, today they have returned him as governor elect.
“We have no fears. They harassed former Central Bank Governor, Sanusi Lamido; today he is the Emir of Kano. So, if what they are doing has Allah’s support, he would not elevate the people being humiliated. There is judgment of history, there is judgment of God. Today they are at the helm of affairs; it does not mean they will be at the helm of affairs tomorrow. They should also await Allah’s judgment”.
