Alleged Land Scam: Court Dismisses Sanusi’s Request To Stop Probe


The Federal High Court sitting in Kano has dismissed the application of deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, seeking to stop the State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC) from investigating a petition against him over N2 billion Naira alleged land scam.
In his judgment on Monday, Justice Ambrose Lewis-Allagoa held that the court couldn’t restrain a statutory body from carrying out its official responsibility.
He added that the deposed emir’s fundamental human rights guaranteed under section 36(1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) has not been breached in any way by the investigation of the commission.

Sanusi had approached the court on March 6th, 2020, seeking to halt PCACC’s invitation to him to come and explain his role in an alleged land transaction scam.
