Bayero who also served as chief aide to late Emir of Kano Alhaji Ado Bayero, told reporters that, when he appeared before the investigating panel, he was presented with some documents, which he went through and requested for more time to study and return the documents.

”I was not given any specific time to report but  if I am able to go through the documents (today), May 9, I will call back the following day to face the panel for further interrogation.”

Isa also said he was quizzed, and also mandated to report back with some documents, which he did not disclose to reporters.

He expressed satisfaction with the probe, adding that at the end of the day, the truth will prevail.
