The PDP Kano Secretary, Auwalu Ibrahim Danzabuwa was also reportedly arrested.

“If the commission is serious about the fight against corruption, it should extend its operation to some APC members because they too shared campaign money during last general elections,” a Kano PDP chieftain, Musa Iliyasu Kwankwaso told Daily Trust.

“This campaign fund is a tradition in Nigerian politics and all political parties did the same thing in 2015 election,” he added.
