Update: EFCC releases wife of Kano state governor
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has freed Hafsat Ganduje, the wife of Kano state Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
According to the Guardian, Mrs Ganduje was obliged to report to the EFCC headquarters in Abuja on Sunday and was interrogated for more than five hours about her suspected role in a land scam. Hafsat had already disregarded the EFCC’s invitation in response to a petition brought against her by her first son, Abdulzeez Ganduje.
The governor’s wife, who was drilled over alleged illegal hijack of land property worth billions of naira, was granted an administrative bill under the influence of her husband.
Governor Ganduje, who accompanied his wife to the EFCC headquarters, was said to have helped to secure her release.
The Governor and his wife returned to Kano through Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano on Tuesday morning October 5.
Abdulzeez had dragged his mother Hafsat Ganduje to the EFCC, over a property which he claims the mother used to enrich herself.
