In a significant development, the Kano High Court has slated April 17, 2024, for the arraignment of the former Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, alongside his wife and six others.

The accused individuals are facing eight-count charges related to allegations of dollar bribery, fund diversion, and misappropriation, including claims of $413,000 and N1.38 billion bribery.


Among the respondents listed in the summons are Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, Hafsat Umar, Abubakar Bawuro, Umar Abdullahi Umar, Jibrilla Muhammad, Lamash Properties Ltd, Safari Textiles Ltd, and Lesage General Enterprises.

According to sources, the Kano State Government, as the plaintiff in the case, has prepared 15 witnesses to testify before the court.

The case, scheduled for April 17, 2024, will be heard by Justice Usman Na’aba at State High Court number four.

Confirming the impending arraignment, the State Attorney General, Haruna Isah Dederi, affirmed that the legal proceedings have been initiated and assured that all concerned parties would be duly served.

In his statement to the press, Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice in Kano State, Haruna Isah Dederi, emphasized the inevitability of facing justice, stating, “You cannot run away from the evil day; it will definitely come to you.”

He further underscored the significance of holding public officials accountable, regardless of their status.

Dederi addressed Ganduje’s assertions about the jurisdiction of the case, clarifying that the offenses in question fall under state jurisdiction and are not solely federal matters. He also mentioned an appeal regarding a previous ruling by Justice Liman.

As the legal process unfolds, all eyes remain on the outcome of the highly anticipated arraignment on April 17, 2024.
