The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested Hafsat Ganduje, the wife of Kano State governor Umaru Ganduje.

According to The Guardian she was arrested on Monday evening over a bribery and land fraud case reported by her son, Abdualzeez Ganduje.

Ganduje’s wife had earlier been invited to report to the EFCC’s Abuja headquarters on September 13, but she failed to honour the invitation.

In his petition, Abdulazeez, the governor’s 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 for refund.

Abdulazeez said the mother refused to honour the request, straining the relationship between him and the developer.
