One of the sons of Jigawa State Governor Sule Lamido was arrested with undeclared N6.3 million at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport Kano on Tuesday night, the EFCC said yesterday. This amount is equivalent to US dollars $50,000.
Aminu Sule Lamido, 34, was arrested with $40,000 cash which he did not disclose in the Customs currency declaration form.
