The Kano State Government under the leadership of Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has denied reports circulating on social media that the Nigerian Anti-Corruption Commission (EFCC) has arrested the wife of Kano State Governor, Hafsat Abdullahi Umar Ganduje for allegedly selling a plot of land that is already being sold.
According to the Kano State Commissioner for Information, Comrade Muhammad Garba posted the statement on his Facebook page this night. He says: “Kano state government has dispatched as mere rumours being peddled by mischief makers that wife to the governor, Prof. Hafsat Ganduje has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)."
He pointed out that, most, unfortunately, the fake story is being peddled on social media platforms without confirmation from either the government or the EFCC.
Garba said the governor's wife has not been arrested or detained and she is presently discharging her responsibilities. The commissioner called on the good people of Kano state to disregard the rumour and also remain calm.
If you recall, last week, it was reported that Kano State Governor Abdulaziz Ganduje had filed a complaint against his mother before the EFCC, alleging that she had sold a recently acquired plot of land.
