He further claimed that the funds were transferred from the Kano Agricultural Supply Company to an association registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission under the name “Association of Compassionate Friends.”

“The Association originally intended to enhance and improve the living conditions of underprivileged children in society, but regrettably, it has been transformed into a mechanism for embezzling public funds,” he stated.
