Speaker of the Kano State House of Assembly, Kabiru Alhassan Rurum, said the Assembly was suspending its investigations into the Kano State Emirate Council, following a letter from the Governor, Umar Ganduje.
The senior council official in charge of finance in the emirate, Bashir Wali, gave the clarifications after the Kano State anti-corruption agency opened an investigation into the accounts of the emirate council over allegations of questionable expenditures running into billions of naira over a short period of time.
Remember the case of Bridget Agbahime? On June 2, the 74-year-old kitchen utensils trader from Imo State was brutally attacked and killed at Kofar Wambai Market in Kano by a Muslim mob who accused her of blasphemy. According to reports, she was pounced upon and murdered after she refused to allow a Muslim man perform ablution in front of her shop.
