Son of Kano State governor, Abdulazeez Ganduje, has reportedly dragged his mother and the Kano State First Lady, Hajia Hafsat Ganduje, before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over allegations of fraud.
CompassNG gathered that the nati-graft agency invited Mrs. Ganduje to report to it’s Abuja headquarters last Thursday, for questioning, but she refused to honour the invitation.
Ganduje had allegedly dragged his mum to the EFCC for using the family’s access to power for private enrichment.
The son had reported to the anti-graft agency that he was approached by a property developer to assist in facilitating the acquisition of some plots of land in Kano, with some hundreds of thousands of US dollars and at least N35 million as “facilitation commission.”
Abdulazeez alleged that he paid the sum in dollars to his mother, Mrs Ganduje.
According to a source, “Three months later, the property developer discovered that the plots of land he wanted and had paid the first family for had been allocated to other buyers and he then requested to be refunded.”
When contacted to comment on the matter, the spokesperson for the Kano State government, Mohammed Garba, said, “I am not aware”
Similarly, the EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, did not comment on the matter when contacted on Monday September 13.
