The Kano State Government has dispelled a report that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s wife, Hafsat Ganduje, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
In a statement Tuesday by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, the government describing the report as mere rumours being peddled by mischief-makers.
Garba regretted that the content of the unfounded story could not be attributed to any credible source such as the purported arresting agency, the EFCC.
Malam Garba said the governor’s wife has not been arrested or detained and is presently discharging her responsibilities as first lady of the state.
The commissioner called on the good people of the state to disregard the rumour, urging them to remain calm.
Interestingly, the EFCC hasn’t toed the path of the Kano State Government by denying the report.
Calls to EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwajuren, have not been successful.
