The Kano State House of Assembly has constituted a seven-man committee to investigate video clips of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje allegedly receiving bribe from a contractor.

During plenary, majority leader and head of the seven-man committee, Mr. Danagundi, advised the executive arm of government to halt the filing of a case before a court of law on the alleged video clip by the online medium.
