Security Agents Move to Arrest Nyako in Abuja, His Whereabout Unknown
Few hours after the Adamawa State House of Assembly impeached Governor Murtal Nyako, security agents stormed his Asokoro residence in Abuja to affect his arrest, but could not locate his where about.
Nyako’s whose security aides were withdrawn at about 1pm shortly after his impeachment was said to absent at his Abuja residence when the security tram arrived to arrest him.
A source close to the governor said: “Some plain-clothe security agents came to look for Nyako but he had left his Asokoro residence.
“These agents were looking so desperate to effect his arrest in connection with a letter he wrote to President Goodluck Jonathan on the security situation in the North, especially Northeast.
“The plot is to arrest him and arraign him for sedition.”
Asked of the governor’s whereabouts, the source said: “Only God and his family could tell now.
“We even learnt that if they cannot locate him, they might declare him wanted. Nyako is a military man; he would only insist on due legal process, even if he has to face trial.”
Indications emerged last night that the impeached governor might be charged to court for alleged treason.
Aside the treason charges that may be filled against him, the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, would also be prosecuting him in in another court for allegedly looting funds of the state said to have been stashed in a local bank.
The governor and the North-East Region manager of the said bank will be charged with another top official of Adamawa State Government, who is being held by the anti-graft agency for aiding and abetting the looting.
A competent source revealed that he Presidency has already ordered the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke, to file treason charges against the governor, who lost his plum job yesterday.
The charges, according to the source, had been prepared by the Federal Government even before the impeachment process against Nyako.
It was revealed that Nyako is to be tried specifically for levying war against Nigeria and inciting Nigerians and the international community against the person of President Goodluck Jonathan by accusing Jonathan of committing genocide against Northerners under the guise of fighting terrorism.
One of the sources said: “The AGF is ready with the treason charges against Nyako, who never showed any remorse over his letter to the Northern Governors Forum and refused to retract the contents and apologise even when he had the opportunity to do so.
“The AGF has since been directed to file treason charges against the governor, who was fired by the Adamawa State House of Assembly on Tuesday (yesterday) because what he did was levying war against the nation and inciting the world against President Jonathan.
“If the former governor is lucky, he will survive the legal onslaught against him but he may be in for many years in jail if convicted for his indiscretion and deliberate action to malign the President of Nigeria,” the source said.
