Kano, Kano state – A Kano high court has fixed April 17, 2024, as the date to arraign the immediate past governor of the state, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, his wife, and six others.

As reported by Daily Trust on Tuesday, April 9, the accused persons will be arraigned on eight-count charges concerning dollar bribery allegation, diversion and misappropriation of funds that include alleged $413,000 and N1.38bn bribery, among others.

In the writ of summon sighted by our reporter, other respondents in the suit are Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, Hafsat Umar, Abubakar Bawuro, Umar Abdullahi Umar, Jibrilla Muhammad, Lamash Properties Ltd, Safari Textiles Ltd and Lesage General Enterprises.

Kano State Government in the criminal suit filed against the 8 respondents said it has assembled 15 witnesses to appear before the Court.

The matter is fixed for April 17, 2024, before Justice Usman Na’aba of state high court number four.

Confirming the development, the State Attorney General, Haruna Isah Dederi, said the case has been filed and all parties involved will be served accordingly.

His words:

“It is very true. We have filed the case but what I cannot confirm is whether he is served or not but he will definitely be served.

“What he (Ganduje) doesn’t understand is that you cannot run away from the evil day, it will definitely come to you and this will even serve as a deterrence to all of us.

“He (Ganduje) was saying that we can’t prosecute him forgetting that the offence also falls under the category of the state offences. It’s not totally a federal affair.”
