The Kano state anti-graft commission chairman, Muhuyi Magaji, has been arraigned before the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja on a 10-count charge.
This was confirmed by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) in a statement released by Veronica Kato, the Head of Press at CCB, and disseminated to journalists in Abuja.
According to Kato’s statement, the charges against Mr Magaji span alleged breaches of the code of conduct for public officers.
They specifically include accusations of conflict of interest, abuse of office, false asset declaration, bribery, and acceptance of gifts.
The CCB’s investigations reportedly uncovered undisclosed bank accounts holding approximately N394 million, raising suspicions of corrupt practices linked to the accused.
Despite the charges, Mr Magaji was granted bail by the tribunal under the conditions of posting a N5 million bond and providing two sureties with properties within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
