Former Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, his wife, son, and five other people are scheduled to be arraigned before the state High Court on April 17, 2024 over bribery-related charges.

The criminal suit against Ganduje and others was filed by the Kano State government on Tuesday. The state has also called 15 witnesses for the hearing scheduled for April 17 before Justice Usman Na’aba.

The ex-Kano governor and others are scheduled to appear in court on eight count charges bordering on alleged $413,000 bribe and the embezzlement of N1.38 billion.

A Federal High Court in Kano had previously ruled that Ganduje could not be the subject of an investigation by the Kano Public Compliance and Anti-Corruption Commission over a $5 million bribery video.

According to Justice Abdullahi Liman, the Attorney General and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have the authority to prosecute the matter, which is under federal jurisdiction.

Meanwhile, the incumbent Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, on Monday, requested the EFCC to disclose findings from its investigation into the bribery video.

The state attorney general, Haruna Dederi, acknowledged receipt of the filing and promised to serve all parties. He emphasized that the charges are not just federal matters but also state offenses.
