EFCC Arrests Speaker of Kano House of Assembly, and 11 others

The EFCC Monday swooped on the Kano State House of Assembly and detained the Speaker of the House, Alh. Gambo Sallau, alongside principal officers in what the state government has described as a political assault on the state government following the mass defection of the State Governor, Engr. Rabiu Kwakwanso alongside several other key politicians in government positions to the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Arrested alongside the Speaker are the Deputy Speaker, Isyaku Ali Danja, the Chief Whip, Deputy Chief Whip, Majority Leader, Deputy Majority Leader, Minority Leader, Deputy Minority Leader, Chairman House Committee on Appropriation, Chairman House Committee on Finance and Clerk of the House. Continue...


A statement by the Government of Kano State said it noted with utter disappointment and surprise, the arrest of the officials.

The statement by the Director of Press and Public Relations to the state governor, Halilu Ibrahim Dantiye, stated that the public officials were apparently arrested in connection with the budget amendment of 2013 of the State Government, which has already been signed into law  by the state governor, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso.

The statement added that the Speaker and his colleagues have only exercised their constitutional responsibilities of ensuring that budgets are properly articulated, to ensure probity and accountability in public expenditure, so that in the end, the citizens enjoy dividends of democracy.

“It is Chrystal clear that the above mentioned public officials were arrested by the EFCC on the orders from the above, because of the legislators’ defection to APC, in support of Governor Kwankwaso,” the government said, adding that “This action is obviously to intimidate and cow them into submission for choosing to move to the progressive fold. This action is not only despicable and absurd but also capable of igniting crisis in the polity, thereby breaching the relative peace that is being enjoyed in Kano state. It is regrettable that the EFCC is allowing itself to be a tool of witch-hunt in the hands of powers that be.”

THEWILL contacted the EFCC spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwajaren, to seek further information on why the officials were detained and the allegation of witch-hunt, he urged us to email our questions for a formal response.

Mr. Uwajaren’s had not responded to our questions as at the time of filing this report.

EFCC self....been a while ....lol.......PMI....

10 QUALITIES YOU LACK AND MAKE HER WANTS A BREAKup.
1: LOVE: When you dedicate yourself giving her maximum time and attention. Being there for her at every point when she need someone to talk to or a shoulder to rest on.
2: FREEDOM: A lady loves it when she feels at home around you. Having the right to contribute and make decision in the relationship.
3: ONE & ONLY: Treat her like a lady that she is,make her know she's the only girl in the world that gat you. Show her she is only one that brings you smile,happiness and goodlucks.
4: FLEXIBILITY: She loves it when you are flexible,adjusting to her likes and her dislikes. You might have your own lifestyle but letting the ones she don't like go for her sake will be a very nice thing to do.
5: PAMPER HER: Every woman loves to be treated like a pet so does everybody. Even if she doesn't say it but giving her a pet name,calling her at sunrise and sunset is absolutely a way of giving her another reason to wakeup loving you.
6: BEING A MAN: Being a man mean being there morning,afternoon and night. Make her have this sense of protection financially,emotionally,morally etc. Giving her a reason to confide in you in all situation.
7: ADDRESSING SITUATION: How do you handle situations? Don't be a bully when handling issues. She is feeble so be easy on her and engage in a simple dialogue
8: COMPETITIVE NOTION: Don't give her a reason to believe she is sharing you with anyother. The first sign of love is Jealousy so let go of things that get her jealous.
9: KNOWING THE WHOLE OF YOU: It gives a lady a handful of pride when she knows not only you but your friends,family,colleagues etc. It gives then a sense of belonging.
10: BEING THE BEST: Being the best means treating her in a such a way that her friends would discuss you,women loves it when the good qualities of their man is made a point of reference by friends. Give her a reason to hate the time she spent with her EX.

LATER SOME BLOODY FOOLS HERE WILL SAY PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT IT AND BE SUPPORTING HIM. IF THE ORDER IS NOT FROM PRESIDENCY HOW COME THE STATE EFCC ARRESTED AND DETAIN WITH NO PRIOR INVESTIGATION. ONLY A FOOLISH MAN WOULDN'T KNOW THE GAME PDP IS PLAYING AND THE POWER THEY ARE ACTING ON IS COMING FROM THE PRESIDENCY. THEY HAVE THEIR RIGHT TO ASSOCIATE, LEAVING ONE PARTY TO THE OTHER IS NOT A CRIME SO I DON'T KNOW WHY PDP IS MAKING IT HELL FOR ITS FORMER PARTY MEMBERS NOW IN APC. *ThatFunctionGuy*

I thought Kano State Govt was the home of probity and accountability ? If so,why Is the EFCC arresting the honourables ? The state govt always advertise the strict fiscal expenditure of the state's revenue in the papers.I guess we have to sit down and watch events unfold.

Shame shame on efcc we as Nigerians do not want to see efcc used as toy for selective justice like in obsanjo government and we are watching you efcc and Nigerians will speak very loud soon...

Good job! Kip it up EFCC&merry christmas to you!

I thought presidency said they don't have people on their watch list. Actions like this will only make the government unpopular and can instigate violence. Its obvious opposition is gaining upper hand and a wise government should respect people's wishes and bow out honorably
