Appeal Court judgement: We’ll still beat you at Supreme Court – Ganduje tells Yusuf

The Chairman of the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Graft Commission, Muhuyi Magaji, has been brought before the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja to face a 10-count charge related to corruption.

The charges, filed by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB), encompass alleged violations of the code of conduct for public officers, conflicts of interest, abuse of office, false asset declaration, bribery, and acceptance of gifts. Magaji was released on bail set at N5 million, requiring two sureties with properties within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). The case has been adjourned until January 10, 2024.

This development coincides with ongoing investigations by both the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Code of Conduct Bureau into Magaji’s activities during the tenure of the former Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

Magaji, previously conducting an investigation into the former governor for alleged corruption based on a viral video purportedly showing Ganduje receiving kickbacks in dollars from a contractor, had vowed to bring Ganduje to justice if found guilty.

Additionally, the EFCC and CCB have independently requested financial records and details of forfeited properties from the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Graft Commission. These agencies seek information on funds released by the Office of the Accountant General of Kano State and the Kano State Ministry of Local Government from 2019 to 2021, along with specifics of contractual engagements by the Commission from 2016 to the present.
