There was a clear indication last night that former Adamawa State Governor, Admiral Murtala Nyako, who was sacked last week, had fled the country.

A report this morning in Vanguard quoted a competent source as confirming that the ex-governor was not in Nigeria, having left the shores shortly after he was impeached by the state House of Assembly over alleged gross misconduct.

Although the source close to Nyako claimed that the man had travelled out of Nigeria to take a deserved rest after many years on the saddle, Vanguard said it learnt that the retired naval chief fled the country in a bid to avoid being harassed by security agents, who have been looking for him.

The former governor, who has already filed an appeal against his removal from office, is also said to have fled the country because of security concerns about his life.

“It is true that Nyako had since left Nigeria to go and have a deserved rest but the main reason he left was because he was afraid for his life,” a close confidant of the former governor told Vanguard last night.

According to him, Nyako had to take the option of leaving the country when it became obvious to him that his enemies could even take his life while pretending to be working to remove him from office.

The source said: “Beyond the issue of trying to impeach the governor, he was really worried about people who could harm him because of their fear that he had so much information.

“So, I can tell you that as we speak, Nyako is not in Nigeria.”

The paper said it learnt at the weekend that the Federal Government was considering declaring Nyako wanted after its operatives had made fruitless search for the former governor both in Yola and Abuja.

It was gathered that security agents, who had been combing Yola and Abuja for the former governor, were frustrated over their inability to trace him, the report said.

It would be recalled that News Express reported both before and on the day of Nyako’s impeachment that he would be arrested and tried for treason by the federal authorities in connection with his controversial letter to northern governors accusing President Goodluck Jonathan of genocide against the North, allegedly using Boko Haram as a front.
