Kano State government has given the Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi, forty-eight hours to explain his indictment in the misappropriation of alleged N3.4bn.
This was contained in a letter sent to the Emir, which was signed by Secretary to the State Government, Usman Alhaji, and obtained by ALL SKY TV NEWS.
Recall that Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commission had earlier released a report, where it claimed that it had uncovered over N3.4 billion allegedly misappropriated by Sanusi, and recommended his suspension as Emir of Kano.
According to the report released by the commission, and signed by its Chairman, Muhuyi Magaji, the alleged amount was said to have been misappropriated between 2014 and 2017.
However, in a swift reaction, Kano State government has asked Emir Sanusi to explain his role in the fraud, in order for the government to take decision over the matter.
The letter, which was dated June, 6, 2019, read in part: “In the light of the foregoing, I am to request you to give satisfactory explanations on the allegations raised within 48 hours of the receipt of this letter to allow government take appropriate decision on the issue in earmest.”
Meanwhile, the Emirate Council is yet to react to this fresh development.
