Sanusi: Kano Commission Summons Emirate’s Treasurer, Secretary


​Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Agency (KSPCACA) is continuing its probe of Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, over an alleged misappropriation of billions of naira supposedly left behind by his predecessor, the late Alhaji Ado Bayero.

DAILY POST gathered that the Treasurer and Secretary of the Emirate Council have been summoned for questioning on Tuesday. “We have gone far in the investigation to safeguard the honour and prestige of the emirate council,” the head of the anti-corruption agency, Muhyi Magaji, said on Monday.

This is despite intervention at the weekendby some Northern Governors. But it is not yet clear if the summons were issued before the Governors resolved the face-off between Kano State Governor Ganduje and Emir Sanusi.

Governors Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto, Nasiru El-Rufa’i of Kaduna, Kashim Shettima of Borno, Aminu Masari of Katsina and Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger had brokered peace last Friday night. The meeting held at the Government House in Kaduna and was first attended by the Emir and the Governors before they were joined by some senior officials from the Kano State Government and the Emirate Council.

Governors Tambuwal, Shettima and El-Rufa’i had earlier met with Ganduje in Abuja on Thursday night before resolving to invite the Emir to Kaduna on Friday. The governors had used the wedding of a nephew of President Muhammadu Buhari to meet the warring parties.
