Over claims that he was under probe by anti-graft officials for the alleged mismanagement of Kano Emirate fund, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has apologized to the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II,

According to news report, the editorial director at BBC, has tendered an apology letter to Sanusi over an April 24 story that said the traditional ruler was amongst those being investigated in connection to alleged misappropriation of about N6 billion Emirate Council fund

Angus has come out to say that the report is not correct.

Angus said: “The recording of the interview was passed to another colleague in Abuja office, summarised in a despatch and then sent to London where the online report was written and published.

“It is now clear from our investigations that the reports did not accurately reflect what we were told by Magaji, who had, in fact, made clear to our reporter that you had not been invited in for questioning and indeed that it was unlikely that there would be a need to invite you for question.

“Accordingly, the report we published suggested that you were under personal investigation was not correct and for that I offer my sincere apologies.”

In the apology letter, dated April 28, 2017, Angus said the BBC has removed the inaccurate interview from its website on April 26.

It was gathered that the Kano state Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission was investigating the Kano Emirate Council as a body over alleged misappropriation of up to N6 billion, but not Sanusi as an individual.
