EFCC Quizzes Ganduje's Commissioner
The Kano State Commissioner for Local Government, Murtala Garo, is currently facing interrogation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over alleged possession of some choice properties in Kano and Abuja.
Murtala Garo is one of the key commissioners in the cabinet of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje who played a key role for the governor's reelection in the 2019 general elections.
A spokesman for the EFCC, Dele Oyewale, who confirmed the development, said the commissioner was “only invited not arrested” to explain “one or two issues”.
Oyewale did not give details of the investigation.
Sources in Kano however revealed that the commissioner was invited by the Kano office of the anti-graft body to explain the source of his wealth in real estate, trucks, filling stations, among others.
