The former Governor of Adamawa, Murtala Nyako, on Saturday returned to Yola, after staying 10 months outside the country.

Nyako, who was welcomed by a large crowd at the Yola International Airport, arrived at about 11:00 a.m and drove in a convoy to the Specialist Hospital and Federal Medical Centre, Yola to console victims of June 4, bomb blast in Yola.Murtala-Nyako

Addressing supporters who later besieged his residence, Nyako thanked them for the solidarity.

“I want to thank the people of Adamawa for their contribution in voting PDP out of office.

“We need to support big brother Buhari, who will deliver,” Nyako said.

He said that he had been vindicated by what had happened since his removal from office and up to the formation of the new government.

NAN recalls that Nyako was impeached on July 15, 2014 and has since been living in Europe.

It would be recalled that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) declared Nyako and his son, AbdulAziz wanted over allegations of conspiracy, stealing, abuse of office and money laundering.

In a statement issued in February, 2015, in Abuja by Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesman of EFCC, the commission said it froze the bank account belonging to Adamawa government shortly before Nyako’s impeachment.

The commission froze the account as a precautionary measure to safeguard the state treasury amidst evidence of looting uncovered by its operatives.

The operatives had alleged massive looting of the treasury by top officials of the government under Nyako, a development that led to the arrest and interrogation of key officials of the state.
