Hafsat Ganduje, wife of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crime 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.
Recall that 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 traveled 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.”
Abdulazeez had dragged his mum, Hafsat Ganduje, to the EFCC, sources familiar with the matter said, suggesting a pattern of corruptly using family access to power for private enrichment.
