The Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun has suspended Abidemi Rufai, one of his aides arrested and arraigned in the United States of America for wire fraud.
A spokesman for the Governor confirmed that action was taken against Abidemi Rufai, to allow law takes its course.
“Let the law take its course and let Rafiu answer the charges against him,” the Spokesman said.
Rufai, 42, has run for office in the past and had been working as a political aide to Governor Dapo Abiodun until his arrest and arraignment which subsequently led to his suspend from office.
The Gazelle News.com had earlier reported that the US authorities accused Rufai of using the stolen identities of more than 100 Washington residents to file fraudulent claims between March and August last year. They say more than $288,000 (£203,000) was deposited into a bank account controlled by him.
He faces up to 30 years in prison
