The Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission has threatened to prosecute any government official found diverting relief materials for personal use.
The commission’s Chairman, Muhuyi Rimingado, made this known in a statement issued today.
According to Rimingado, the commission had received complaints about some local government chairmen involved in the diversion of relief items meant to cushion the effects of lockdown to curb the spread of coronavirus in the state.
He said the council chairmen were said to have indulged in sharing the items among their party officials and others believed to be their associates.
He said the act is contrary to the guidelines which entail that vulnerable people are eligible to benefit from the palliatives.
He warned that anybody found to have engaged in any shoddy act would face the wrath of the law.
