Money has torn apart a group of musicians from the north that came together in the run up to the general election to rally supports for the elections of the candidates of the ruling party, particularly the party presidential candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari under the banner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Northern Musicians Forum (ANMFO).
Popular singer, Dauda Kahutu Rarara, who is the director of music of the group, is alleged of pocketing N100 million governors of northern extraction gave the members during the election.
Rara as he is fondly called is being accused by an 11-man committee chaired by the acting Vice President of the forum, Murtala Mamsa and Chairman, Abuja chapter of the forum, Ahmed Turaki Kaka as Secretary, Daily Trust wrote.
The paper said the committee invited Rara for questioning to give account of the said sum but refused to honour the invitation.
It added that the committee’s secretary, Ahmed Turaki Kaka, said the probe was necessary because of the various complaints from members of the forum on suspected mismanagement of funds raised through donations from individuals, agencies and philanthropists.
“We aren’t aware of any notification letter, we would respond promptly any time the said letter is served on us,” the report quoted Aminu Afandaj, Rara’s media aide as saying.
