The Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-corruption Agency has detained three senior officials from the state administration for advising illegal migrants to get Nigerian citizenship

The Chairman of the agency, Muhuyi Magaji made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Kano.

He alleged that the suspects collected bribe from the foreign nationals to write letters of recommendation to the Federal Ministry of Internal Affairs, using Government letter-headed papers.

“These are senior officials of Kano state government conniving to write fake letters recommending illegal aliens to secure Nigerian citizenship.

“We have arrested them. They are giving us useful information. We will keep interrogating them; and at the end, if found wanting, they will be prosecuted.

“We will not tolerate this kind of unpatriotic action from senior government officials.

“This government abhors corruption, and we will do everything possible to ensure that anybody found neck-deep in corruption is exposed,” Muhuyi said.
