The Chairman of the Kano State Anti-Graft Commission, Muhuyi Magaji, has been arraigned by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) at the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja. The charges against Magaji include alleged abuse of office and other offenses related to his conduct as a public officer. This development was disclosed by Veronica Kato, the Head of Press at the CCB, in a statement released on Saturday in Abuja.
According to Kato, Magaji faced a 10-count charge that encompasses breaches of the code of conduct for public officers, conflict of interest, abuse of office, false asset declaration, bribery, and other related charges.
