Emir Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi ii, has been summoned to appear before State Anti Corruption and Complaints Commission over alleged misappropriation of Kano Emirate Funds.
He was handed an ultimatum lasting 24 hours in which he must appear to defend himself on the alleged charges of corruption
The ultimatum, however, elapses today, 5th of March 2020.
Emir Sanusi is to answer questions over alleged misappropriating N3.4 billion by the Kano Emirate Council under his watch.
Though the Emir did not officially speak on the invitation, an impeccable source within the Palace confirmed that the Emir had actually received a letter from the anti-graft Commission to that effect.
When asked whether Emir Sanusi will be willing to honour the invitation, he said, “that I may not confirm to you, but you know that Emir Sanusi is a law-abiding leader.
“He has not discussed the development with anyone of us, but I believe he may honour the invitation in person or send a senior palace Chief who is capable of standing for him.”
However, several calls put across to the Chairman of the Commission to explain in details the issues in contest, did not yield results as he could not be reached on phone.
But an insider in the commission confirmed the invitation, saying that the Emir was given 24 hours to appear before the Commission, “and I can assure you that there is no going back on the probe against him and the emirate council on the issue of alleged misappropriation of public funds.”
