September 15, (NaijaOnPoint Media) – A Sharia Court in Kano and the State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission are investigating an alleged “fraudulent” withdrawal of N345 million from a bank account operated in trust of inheritors by a Sharia Court in Kano state.
NaijaOnPoint Media gathered that the money is part of funds deposited by the Sharia Court, being the custodians, in a case of inheritance.
The money was allegedly withdrawn by some unauthorized persons from a bank account of the court.
Chief Registrar, Sheikh Haruna Khalil, said only N9million is left in the account.
Grand Khadi of Kano Sharia Court of Appeal, Dr. Tijjani Yusuf, who confirmed the development, said, “We have already submitted the matter to Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission for investigation.”
