The Kano State commissioner for Local Government, Murtala Garo, is currently facing interrogation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over alleged possession of some choice properties in Kano.
Mr Garo is one of the key commissioners in the cabinet of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
Spokesman for the EFCC, Dele Oyewale, confirmed the development to DAILY NIGERIAN, saying the commissioner was “only invited not arrested” to explain “one or two issues”.
Mr Oyewale did not give details of the investigation.
Sources however told DAILY NIGERIAN that he was invited by the Kano office of the anti-graft agency to explain the source of his alleged wealth.
