Two former governors who last year decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) are among a host of suspects to be tried by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

A former governor of Zamfara State, Mahmud Shinkafi, and that of Kebbi State, Sa’idu Dakingari, will be docked by the anti-corruption agency for breaching the country’s anti money laundering law.

Already, charges have been prepared and filed at federal high courts in the respective states, against the two former governors and their alleged accomplices.

Critics of the federal agency often accuse it of allegedly going after opposition politicians only.

However Messrs Shinkafi and Dakingari decamped to the APC last year, without citing any reasons for their action, in a wave of defections across the country.

Critics described such defections as a means of escaping corruption charges.
