HAFSAT Ganduje, First Lady of Kano State, has returned home after her arrest and interrogation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission,EFCC.
She was arrested based on a petition filed by Abdulazeez, one of her sons.
In his petition, Abdulazeez, the governor’s first son, had said he was approached by a property developer to facilitate the acquisition of some plots of land in Kano with some hundreds of thousands of US dollars as commission.
He said three months later, the property developer discovered that the plots of land he paid for had been allocated to other buyers and he requested a refund.
Abdulazeez said her mother refused to honour the request, straining the relationship between the son and the developer. He later fled abroad after
filing the petition which was widely reported in the media.
The anti-graft agency had summoned Kano first lady but she refused to honour the invitation. She was
picked up following her reluctance to honour the invitation extended to her on the matter.
She was quizzed immediately after her arrest Monday and the interview continued on Tuesday.
