Kano Anti-Graft Agency Debunks Reported Court Order Stopping Sanusi’s Probe
The Kano State Complaints and Anti- Corruption Commission has debunked story that a court order stopped it from investigating alleged mismanaging of Kano Emirate Fund by the Emir, Muhammadu Sanusi III.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Commission Chairman, Muhuyi Magaji Rimi Gado on Monday.
The Commission, however, accepted that there is a standing order restraining it from executing a warrant of arrest on three Emirate Council staff.
In the statement, Rimi Gado noted that the Commission is obeying by maintaining status quo.
He said that the Commission as a law abiding organization and that it operates within the ambit of law and respect for court orders.
“The commission is a law abiding institution, very interested in the moral path, doing the right thing and has never consciously broken in law to the best of its acquaintance.
“Hence, the commission will continue to obey the law as always,” he noted.
Citing a lawsuit as authority, Obiwusi vs EFCC & ANOR (2018) LPERLR-44536), he stated that no court of law is empowered to stop a statutory agency from performing its statutory responsibilities.
