Kwankwaso clears air on alleged EFCC arrest

A former governor of Kano state, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has denied reports that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The former governor, however, said he personally went to the commission’s office to clear his name over “a frivolous petition” against him.

Mr Kwankwaso said he went to the commission headquarters to give his own side of the story on the allegations, adding that he personally reported to the EFCC, where he met with officials from the anti-corruption agency for a few hours.

Mr Kwankwaso, a former defense minister, called the petition politically motivated, allegedly concocted by political opponents determined to embarrass him.

He said there was no iota of truth about the whole allegation.

“The rumor of my arrest is false and unfounded. As a law-abiding and law-abiding citizen, I personally visited the commission on Saturday in order to clear my name and that is exactly what happened ”.

“I met them, the officials of the EFCC and told them that I had just cleared my name following a petition written since 2015 against me. I have provided answers to all questions asked by officials, ”said the former governor.
