‘Corruption fighting back’ – Kano anti-graft agency boss reacts to withdrawal of Police officers

Chairman of the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission, PCACC, Muhyi Magaji Rimin Gado has described the withdrawal of policemen attached to the agency as corruption fighting back.

Addressing newsmen in his office, he said policemen working in the Commission exhibit professionalism and do not compromise especially when investigating high profile cases.

“If you are fighting corruption you step on toes and you would not be forgiven. So corruption is fighting back.

“From the look of things there are people trying to stop the commission from its work,” Rimin Gado stated.

However, he commended the police authorities for clarifying their position on the withdrawal, which was hinged on personnel audit, saying that there was a communication gap on the development.

Rimin Gado noted that he is not the only one taking the heat “as police officers involved in investigation of high profile cases are also taking the heat”.

He, however, vowed that they will not relent but continue to do the job without compromise.

He added that the Commission will continue to learn from its mistakes, stressing the need amend the law establishing the agency to give specific roles to the police and other law enforcement agents.

According to him, between 50 and 100 suits were served on the Commission asking it to stop investigation in high profile cases.

Rado said the Commission has worthy partners in the police, DSS and Ministry of Justice, adding that states like Jigawa and Benue are emulating what the PCACC is doing.
