CLEAR THE MISCONCEPTION: KANO EMIRATE COUNCIL CASE

The commission is accentuating to the general public that there is no any court order that prevents the commission from carrying out investigation activities in relation to the investigation of alleged misappropriation of Kano Emirate council funds, and as a matter-of-fact, the commission did not receive any court order that stop us from conducting our statutory responsibility. What we know as far as the commission is concerned is that, there is an order that directed the commission to maintain the status quo regarding to the arrest warrant issued against three (3) Emirate Council staffs. This was after the commission obtained an order from a Chief Magistrate Court to arrest the three suspects. Nevertheless, the commission acknowledged a State High Court interim injunction to maintain the status quo regarding to the arrest not to stay all action, which refrain the commission from arresting them, and in that regard the suspects are out there enjoying their freedoms.
Generally, nobody issued a court order asking us to stop investigations or to stop any further activities, and we believe that it is not even within the powers of the court to stop a statutory agency from performing their statutory responsibility (REF: Obiwusi vs EFCC & ANOR (2018) LPERLR-44536).
Finally the commission is a law abiding institution, very interested in the moral path, doing the right thing and have never consciously broken in law to the best of its acquaintance. Hence, the commission will continue to obey the law as always.
