Hafsat Ganduje, the wife of Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, has been arrested by the EFCC.
Mrs Ganduje was arrester over a bribery and land fraud case reported by her son, PREMIUM TIMES has learnt.
The arrest comes weeks after her failure to honour the anti-graft agency’s invitation.
Mrs Ganduje had earlier been invited to report to the EFCC’s Abuja headquarters on September 13.
But she did not appear and the EFCC then threatened to arrest her. Sources close to her later said she travelled to the UK at the time to attend the graduation ceremony of her son.
Investigators are questioning Mrs Ganduje over allegations relating to land fraud in a petition by her own son, Abdualzeez Ganduje.
A person, who has the knowledge of the arrest but asked not to be identified, said “she was arrested this (Monday) evening.”
Onyxnewsng learnt that Ganduje was still at EFCC headquarters as of 6a.m. on Monday.
Abdulazeez had dragged his mum, Hafsat Ganduje, to the EFCC, sources familiar with the matter revealed, suggesting a pattern of corruptly using family access to power for private enrichment.
