After receiving the money from the property developer, sources who saw Abdulazeez’s petition said he paid the sum in dollars to his mother, Mrs. Hafsat Ganduje.

“But three months later, (the property developer) discovered that the plots of land he wanted and had paid the first family for had been allocated to other buyers and he then requested to be refunded,” one source added.

Ganduje’s wife had been invited for questioning at the Abuja headquarters of the EFCC, but she shunned the invitation extended to her by the anti-graft agency.
