Court stops Kano Assembly from investigating Gov Ganduje

The State House of Assembly had on Monday, Oct. 15, set up a seven-man committee to investigate the authenticity of video clips allegedly showing Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje receiving bribe.

A Kano High court on Monday ordered the state House of Assembly investigative committee to stop investigation on the bribery allegation against the state Governor, Dr Abdullah Ganduje, pending determination of a case filed before it on the matter.

The order followed a suit filed by one Muhammad Zubair for himself and the national coordinator of lawyers for sustainable democratization of Nigeria.

The suit is against three defendants: the Kano state House of Assembly, chairman of investigative committee, Baffa Babba Dan-Agundi and the Attorney General of the state and commissioner of Justice, Barrister Ibrahim Muktar.
