The government of Kano state has debunked reports that Prof. Hafsat Ganduje, the wife of the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
A statement by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, expressed regret that the content of the unfounded story could not be attributed to any credible source such as the purported arresting agency, the EFCC.
He pointed out that unfortunately, the fake story is being peddled on social media platforms without confirmation from either the government or the EFCC.
Malam Garba said the governor’s wife has not been arrested or detained and is presently discharging her responsibilities.
The commissioner called on the good people of the state to disregard the rumour, urging them to remain calm.
