It was gathered that the commission’s Director of Operations, CSP Sulaiman Aliyu Gusau, Monday invited an aide to an emirate member Emir, Isa Bayero for investigation.

This, according to reports, may signal fresh corruption charges against Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

“Pursuant to provision of section 31(1) (a) and (b) of the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Law 2008 (as amended) requested release of the officer to explain payment vouchers from 2013 to 2017,” the letter read.

“It directed Isa. S. Bayero to be at the commission conference room by 12.00noon on Thursday, May 9, over an investigation on alleged violation of section 26 of the commission’s enabling Law in the management of Kano State Emirate Council Fund.”

Sanusi had been investigated by the commission in 2018 before the state House of Assembly forced the commission to stay action on the matter.
