Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission has insisted that emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II, has a case to answer despite a court order restraining it.
Addressing a press conference in Kano, the chairman of the commission Muhyi Magaji Rimingado argued the ruling of Justice Egwuata did not prevent the commission from executing its primary responsibility.
According to him, the ruling of the federal high court has opened the commission to the option of two decisions which it will not hesitate to take.
“Having studied the ruling of the Honourable Court, it is our understanding that, the Honourable Court presided by Justice O.A. Egwuata did not stop the Commission from further investigating the case and or submitting a report after hearing from the Applicant,” Rimingado said.
“Consequently, the Commission has two options for consideration- to appeal the judgment as there are numerous grounds of appeal. Continue with the investigation since the case has been decided and invite Emir in compliance with the Court ruling.”
Rimingado accused the emir of plotting to frustrate the commission’s investigation and frustrate the progress of the process.
