EFCC arrests Know First Lady over fraud

1 min read

The wife of Kano State Governor, Hafsat Ganduje has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). She was arrested based on a petition written to the anti-graft agency by one of her sons Abdulazeez.

In his petition, Abdulazeez, (a biological son of Governor Ganduje)  had said he was approached by a property developer to facilitate the acquisition of some plots of land in Kano with some hundreds of thousands of US dollars as commission.

He said three months later, the property developer discovered that the plots of land he paid for had been allocated to other buyers and he requested for refund.

Abdulazeez said the mother refused to honour the request, straining the relationship between him and the developer.

He was said to have fled abroad after filing the petition which was widely reported in the media.

The anti-graft agency had summoned the governor’s wife  but she was said to have refused to honour the invitation.

A reliable source squealed that she was quizzed immediately after her arrest Monday evening by the crack detective team of the anti-graft agency, adding that she would continue to respond to queries in relation to the subject matter on Tuesday at the commission’s headquarters.

Attempt to make the EFCC’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, react to the development was unsuccessful as his mobile phone was switched off.
