Kano state government has dispeled as mere rumours being peddled by mischief makers that wife to the governor, Prof. Hafsat Ganduje has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
A statement by the commissioner for information, Muhammad Garba expressed regrets that the content of the unfounded story could not be attributed to any credible source such as the purported arresting agency, the EFCC.
Some online newspapers had reported earlier today that the governor’s wife is been detained by the EFCC.
PlatinumPost correspondent in Kano learnt that Mrs Ganduje landed at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport Tuesday morning, immediately proceeded to Danbatta local government for an official engagement.
He pointed out that most, unfortunately, the fake story is being peddled on social media platforms without confirmation from either the government or the EFCC
Malam Garba said the governor’s wife has not been arrested or detained and she is presently discharging her responsibilities.
The commissioner called on the good people of Kano state to disregard the rumour and also remain calm.
