EFCC Arrests Wife Of Governor Of Kano State

The wife of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state, Hafsat Ganduje, has been arrested by the Nigerian anti-graft agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC over a bribery and land fraud case reported by her son.

The arrest comes weeks after her failure to honour the anti-graft agency’s invitation.

Mrs Ganduje had earlier been invited to report to the EFCC’s Abuja headquarters on September 13. But she did not appear and the EFCC then threatened to arrest her. Sources close to her later said she travelled to the UK at the time to attend the graduation ceremony of her son.

Investigators are questioning Mrs Ganduje over allegations relating to land fraud in a petition by her own son, Abdualzeez Ganduje.

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.
