The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reportedly arrested Hafsat, wife of Abdullahi Ganduje, Kano governor, over allegations of bribery and fraud.

The EFCC had acted based on a petition by her son, Abdulazeez, a report by Premium Times said.

Hafsat was arrested after failing to show up at the EFCC Abuja headquarters on September 13 upon invitation.

She was said to have travelled to the UK at the time to attend the graduation ceremony of her son.

Abdulazeez was said to have reported his mother to the commission for corruptly using family power and status for personal enrichment.

According to the report, Abdulazeez in his petition had stated 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”.
