So, on Monday, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC Ibrahim Magu invited reporters for a press conference in commemoration of his third year in office.

Trust Nigerian journalists, they used the opportunity to ask him about the bribery video linked to Kano State governor Adbullahi Ganduje.

And guess what he did, he parried the question and then refused to answer whether the governor would be probed.

The acting EFCC boss had reeled out the achievements of the anti-graft agency in the last three years including some convictions and recoveries.

However, during the question and answer session, Magu was asked to confirm if the EFCC was investigating Ganduje who was allegedly caught on camera collecting kickbacks from contractors.

He simply said: “Next question please.”

The Kano State House of Assembly had begun investigations into the matter but was stopped by a court from going further.

The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), had also said the Kano Assembly was not competent to probe the governor, adding that only an anti-graft agency like the EFCC could do so.
