The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have officially arrested the former speaker of the Kano House of Assembly, Isyaku Ali Danja, on charges centered on abuse of office and misappropriation of fund meant for constituency projects after he allegedly diverted funds meant for payment of tax liabilities to Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to the tune of over N1.5 billion.

Danja was arrested following a petition filed against him by the State Government after the large sum of money was allegedly traced to some beneficiaries and Allad Drilling Limited, a company which he is the sole signatory.

It was also alleged that the diverted funds were on several occasions, personally withdrawn in cash by the former Speaker.
