Many people took to the streets of Kano in protest on Thursday as the Kano State House of Assembly began its investigation into a bribery allegation against Governor Abdullahi Ganduje with the Publisher of Daily Nigeria appearing before its investigative committee.
Daily Nigeria had published the video clip, which went viral, allegedly showing the governor receiving a bribe.
Although the governor denied the allegation, the Assembly had on October 15 set up a seven-man investigative committee to probe the claim.
The committee began its sitting on Thursday with the publisher, Jafar Jafar, who was invited to provide details about the video, appearing before it.
Jafar told the committee that he is not the originator of the leaked video.
According to him, the video was obtained from a whistleblower two years ago.
