Lagos - Abdullahi Muhammed Hanga, the Kano State legal practitioner, is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday following his arrest for alleged property fraud.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arraigned him before Justice Aisha Mahmud of Kano State High Court for alleged fraud to the tune of N45 million.

It is alleged that one Hadiza gave the accused the property in question to sell three years ago but contrary to the instruction of the property owner to sell to an unnamed buyer, Abdullahi, using forged documents, sold the property to one of his relations and converted the proceeds to his personal use.
