EFCC grills ex-Kano gov Kwankwaso over alleged N10bn fraud…
The immediate past Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, is currently being grilled by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for alleged fraud to the tune of N10bn among others.
The Punch learnt that Kwankwaso was invited for allegedly diverting N10bn meant for the payment of pensions and construction of houses.
Some retirees are believed to have written a petition to the commission demanding the investigation and possible prosecution of the ex-governor.
“Kwankwaso came in today. He is responding to questions on alleged fraud following a series of petitions the EFCC received against him. In one of such petitions, the former governor was accused of diverting N10bn meant for the payment of pensions and construction of houses,” an EFCC detective said.
The former governor, who is a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, is among those rumoured to be nursing a Presidential ambition.
