Kano Governor’s son drags mother to EFCC over alleged fraud

Abdulazeez Ganduje, the eldest son of the governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has reported his mother, Prof. Hafsat Ganduje, to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for allegedly swindling him.

Premium Times reports that Mrs. Ganduje was invited to report last Thursday to the Abuja headquarters of the Commission but she did not honour the invitation.

This development followed the governor himself being allegedly caught on camera stuffing bribes dollars in his dress.

According to sources who saw Abdulazeez’s petition, he reported that he was approached by a property developer to help facilitate the acquisition of some plots of land in Kano with some hundreds of thousands of US dollars and at least 35 million Naira as “facilitation commission”.

The paper further learnt that Abdulazeez said he paid the sum in dollars to his mother “But 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,” one source added.

Asked to comment on the matter, a spokesperson for Kano State Government, Mohammed Garba, said, “I am not aware” and, so, he could not comment. EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, did not comment on the matter when contacted on Monday.
