Kano anti-graft agency quizzes Sanusi’s ex-aide over alleged financial misappropriations at emirate


Isa Bayero, the former place aide to Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, on Thursday honored the invitation of the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission over allegations of financial misappropriations of the Kano emirate funds.

Bayero who also served as chief aide to late Emir of Kano Alhaji Ado Bayero told reporters that, when he appeared before the investigating panel, he was presented with some documents, which he went through and requested for more time to study and return the documents.

” I was not given any specific time to report but if I am able to go through the documents (today), May 9, I will call back the following day to face the panel for further interrogation.”

Isa also said he was quizzed, and also mandated to report tomorrow (Friday) with some documents, which he did not disclose to reporters.

He expressed satisfaction with the probe, adding that at the close of the day, the truth will prevail.

During the Thursday’s interrogation, only Alhaji Isa Bayero appeared before the panel of investigators, while the other three invitees failed to honour the invitation.

When asked, why the other invitees failed to show up, Bayero simply said he is not their mouthpiece and was at the anti-graft agency to represent himself.



Recall that the Kano State Public Complain And Anti-corruption Agency on Monday invited  Bayero, and three others  for questioning over some financial dealings at the emirate between 2013-2017.
