The Kano State Government has withdrawn its suit against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission seeking to stop it from further inviting, investigating, or interrogating the immediate past Governor of Kano state Abdullahi Ganduje.
In a notice of discontinuance with the case, instituted by Amina Yusuf Yargaya, Solicitor General Kano State Ministry for Justice, the application is brought pursuant to Order 50 of the Federal High Court Civil Procedure Rules 2019 as amended.
This information is contained in a letter signed by the Kano Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Haruna Isa Dederi, dated 4th July, 2023, and addressed to Sanusi Musa, SAN
”We write to notify you that Kano State Government and the Attorney General of Kano State wish to debrief you of the earlier instructions, given to you to handle the case NO: FHC/ KN/71/2023 between Attorney General of Kano State and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
“You and your team members are therefore instructed not to take any further steps on the matter, either by appearing in court or filing any processes in respect of the case” the Kano Attorney General concluded.
Recall that the Kano state government under the former governor through the Ministry of Justice had issued a fiat instrument to restrain EFCC from investigating the controversial dollar video.
However, the new Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, instructed the Ministry under the present Attorney General to discontinue the case.
