Two former governors, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko would soon be guests of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The former governors would be quizzed on allegations of money laundering and misappropriation of state funds during their tenure.

Kwankwaso, would be invited based on petitions alleging diversion of local government funds amounting to 3.08 billion naira and Wamakko, ex-governor of Sokoto State would be expected to clear the air over allegations of theft of public funds and money laundering totalling 15 billion naira.

EFCC said in confidence that the Commission is currently carrying out investigations into several petitions brought against the two former governors in 2015.

The source said investigations into this and other petitions were ongoing to trace where these funds were deposited, adding that Kwankwaso would soon be invited by the EFCC to defend the allegations.
