In what appears to be more troubles for the embattled Emir of Kano Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi ii, the State Anti Corruption and Complaints Commission has summoned him to appear before it to answer for alleged misappropriation of Kano Emirate Funds.
The Kano Public Complaints and Anti Corruption Commission was said to have given the Emir a 24-hour ultimatum within which he must appear to defend himself on alleged corruption charges
The ultimatum, be that as it may, elapses today, 5th of March 2020.
Emir Sanusi is to address inquiries over alleged misappropriating N3.4 billion by the Kano Emirate Council under his supervision.
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 stated, “that I may not affirm to you, yet you realize that Emir Sanusi is a law-abiding leader.
“He has not talked about 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, a few calls put across to the Chairman of the Commission to clarify in details the issues in contest, didn’t yield results as he was unable to be reached on telephone.
But an insider in the commission affirmed the invitation, saying that the Emir was given 24 hours to show up before the Commission, “and I can guarantee 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.”
