N2.2bn land scam: Deposed Emir Sanusi appeals judgment
The deposed Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Wednesday, appealed a judgment delivered by a Federal High Court .
The Federal High Court had dismissed suit filled by former Emir against the Kano state Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission.
But, the appeal against the judgement was filled by Lawyers to the former emir, Messrs Dikko and Mahmoud.
The former Emir had sought the court’s protection against an investigation by the antic irruption commission into an alleged N2.2 billion land scam.
“In addition to the notice of appeal, we have also filed an application for an injunction pending the hearing of our client’s appeal.
“We are optimistic that the appeal has merits and the facts and the law before the Court of Appeal are in favour of our client and the same will be pursued to a logical conclusion by our client.
“Based on the foregoing, therefore, all further actions in respect of the subject matter of the appeal are automatically put on hold and all parties should stay any action and not to take any precipitated step that will foist a fait accompli on the Court of Appeal,” Messrs Dikko and Mahmoud stated.
