The Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has reportedly arrested Hafsat Ganduje, the wife of Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
According to a report by Premium Times, Mrs Ganduje was reported to the anti-graft agency by her son over her alleged involvement in bribery and land fraud.
According to sources who saw the son, Abdulazeez’s petition, he reported that he was approached by a property developer to help facilitate the acquisition of some plots of land in Kano with some hundreds of thousands of US dollars and at least 35 million Naira as “facilitation commission”.
Abdulazeez said he paid the sum in dollars to his mother, Mrs Ganduje.
She however failed to honour the anti-graft’s invite after weeks it was extended.
A person, who has the knowledge of the arrest but asked not to be identified, said “she was arrested this (Monday) evening.”
Mrs Ganduje was still at EFCC headquarters as of 6a.m. on Monday, this newspaper learnt.
