The Coordinator of Kwankwaso Media Centre, Malam Sunusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, has said the former Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, was not arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) contrary to media reports.
The coordinator, in a statement, said Kwankwaso personally visited the commission’s office to clear his name over some “frivolous petition” against him.

He said the former governor visited the commission headquarters to give his own side of the story over the allegations and met with the officials of the anti-graft agency for some few hours.
The statement further said the former defence minister had described the petition as “politically motivated”.
“The rumour of my arrest is false and baseless. As a law abiding and respected citizen, I personally visited the commission on Saturday in order to clear my name and exactly that’s what happened.
“I met with them, the officials of EFCC, and told them that I came to clear my name over a petition written since 2015 against me. I provided answers to all the questions raised by the officials,” the statement quoted the former governor.
