The Kano State House of Assembly has constituted an eight-man Committee to investigate the allegations of funds mismanagement levelled against the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

Sanusi, the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has been accused of mismanaging N4 billion which he inherited from Emir Ado Bayero, his predecessor which he has since denied.

However, speaking at plenary on Wednesday, Hon Ibrahim Gama, member representing Nasarawa constituency of the state, moved a motion on urgent public importance declaring that some of the allegations against Sanusi ought to be looked into.

He stated that some of the allegations against Sanusi includes spending funds without the approval of the state Governor, Umar Ganduje, attacking the polices of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and sending his daughter to represent him without wearing full traditional regalia.

The house adopted the motion after it was put to voice vote by the Speaker, Alhassan Rurum, who then set up the eight-man committee, chaired by Labaran Abdul Madari, Chief Whip of the house, to investigate the allegations.

The House mandated the Committee to report back in two weeks for further legislative action.
