Abdulazeez Ganduje, son of Kano State governor, Umar Ganduje, has reportedly dragged his mother and first lady of Kano State, Hafsat Ganduje, before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), over allegations of fraud.
Mrs Hafsat Ganduje was invited to report last Thursday to the Abuja Headquarters of the EFCC for questioning but she turned down the invitation.
Abdulazeez had allegedly dragged his mother to the EFFC for using family access to power for private enrichment.
He reported to the agency that he was approached by a property developer to help facilitate the acquisition of some plots of land in Kano State with some hundreds of thousands of US dollars and at least paid the sum in dollars to his mother, Mrs Hafsat Ganduje.
“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”, a source said.
However, spokesperson for the Kano State government, Mohammed Garba, when asked to comment on the issue, said, “I am not aware”.
Also, EFFC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, did not comment on the issue when contacted.
