The former governor, who was interrogated for about four hours before he was released voluntarily reported along side the former Kaduna state PDP Chairman, Haruna Gaya and former Secretary to the state government, Hamza Ishaq  to the Kaduna state EFCC office in the state capital, where they were interrogated by detectives of the commission.

They were later released on administrative bail.

But  the spokesman of the  former governor,  Yakubu Lere,  absolved his boss of any wrong doing in connection with the disbursement of the campaign fund.

He  alleged that his boss was being blackmailed and harassed  by the current administration  ahead of the 2019 election.
