The former governor and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) visited the EFCC office on Saturday afternoon, a source told TheCable.

“Yes, he was here and was interrogated,” the source said.

The former governor is said to be under investigation over a petition filed in 2015 by some workers and pensioners in the state who accused him of mismanaging pension remittances contributed between 2011 and 2015.

Kwankwaso spent a second term as governor of Kano from 2011 to 2015.

In August, TheCable had reported how EFCC sealed off one of his properties in Kano.

The property was said to have been sealed off as a result of a petition sent to the anti-graft agency by some family members of Ismaila Gwarzo, a former national security adviser during the late Sani Abacha administration.

Abdullahi Gwarzo, former managing director of the defunct Refuse Management and Sanitation Board (REMASAB) in Kano, allegedly sold the property to Kwankwaso but failed to remit the money to Gwarzo’s family.

The Kano state government had, earlier in the year, announced the scrapping of REMASAB and said a private company would be engaged for refuse management.

Several houses belonging to the former REMASAB MD, located in Gwarzo town, Danbare, Bompai, among others, were also sealed off by the anti-graft agency.
