EFCC releases wife of Kano state governor

Hafsat Ganduje, the wife of Kano state Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has been released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Guardian reports that Ganduje who was compelled to report herself to EFCC headquarters in Abuja on Sunday was quizzed for more than five hours for her alleged involvement in a land scandal.

Hafsat had earlier ignored the EFCC’s invitation following the petition filed against her by 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.
