Muhyi Rimingado, Chairman of the commission, made this known during a press conference to update the public on the progress of investigation into alleged illegal construction of shops at Kofar Wambai Market in the state.
According to Rimingado, Nasiru Zango, a journalist with Freedom Radio, said the bribe was given to him ¬†in order to stop a story he was running on a magazine programme on the station.
‚ÄúThe Journalist walked into the office with the money given to him by one of the party in the case, asking him to stop ruining the story but his conscience is not at peace with the money,‚ÄĚ Rimingado said.
He said the money will be presented as evidence when the investigation is concluded, and the case taken to court.
