Kano anti-corruption commission recommends Sanusi’s suspension

The Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commission has recommended the suspension of Muhammadu Sanusi, emir of Kano.

The commission said during its investigation, it uncovered that N3.4 billion was misspent by the emirate under Sanusi.

The amount was said to have been misappropriated between 2014 and 2017.

According to NAN, this is contained in a preliminary report of investigation conducted by the commission and signed by Muhuyi Magaji, its chairman.

The interim report raised four cardinal issues bordering on indictment, amount involved, obstruction of investigation and recommendations.

The report indicated that the Kano emirate council had spent over N1.4 billion in various expenditure believed to be fraudulent and unappropriated.

In addition, the emirate council was alleged to have spent over N1.9 billion unappropriated on seemingly personal expenditure, making the sum of the questionable expenditure.

According to the report, the expenditure contravened the provisions of section 120 of the 1999 constitution of Nigeria (as amended) and section 8 of the Kano state emirate council special fund law 2004.
