How we filmed Ganduje while collecting bribes – Journalist


Mr Jafar Jafar, the Publisher of the Daily Nigerian, the online medium that broke the news of Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje’s $5m bribery scandal has given a hint of how the Kano governor was caught on camera several times while receiving kickbacks from contractors.

Jafar dropped the hint on Thursday when he appeared before a committee of the State House of Assembly Investigating the scandal.

According to the publisher when asked about his source of the video, he said, “A whistle-blower, who is someone I know, gave me the video clips.

“He told me that Governor Ganduje is fond of collecting bribes of between 15 and 30 per cent from contractors executing various projects in the state.

“I told the whistle-blower that we need evidence before we publish the story; and that we have to rigidly follow the rigours of the profession.

“He captured 15 clips, nine of them showed the governor’s face, while six did not show the governor’s face. We initially released one, which did not have the conversation, and later we released the second one.”
