Land scam: Court dismisses Sanusi’s suit, okays probe-

A Federal High Court in Kano on Monday dismissed a case filed by the former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, seeking to stop an investigation into alleged racketeering of landed property of the Kano Emirate Council.

The PUNCH reports that former Kano monarch, on Friday, March 6, 2020, approached the court with an ex parte motion against the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission, Muhyi Magaji Rimingado, Attorney General of Kano State and the governor.

The ex parte motion prayed the court to restrain the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission and its Chairman, Rimingado, from investigating the affairs of the applicant (Sanusi), pending the hearing of the originating motion.

The presiding Judge, Justice Lewis Allagoa, in a ruling, said that the commission did not violate the right of the former emir by investigating the allegations against him.

Allagoa, thereafter, dismissed the case, adding that the fundamental human right of Sanusi was not infringed.

Announcing the outcome of the court sitting, Abubakar Ibrah, Senior Special Assistant on Social Media to Kano State Governor Umar Ganduje, said, “Te Federal High Court per Allogoa dismissed the application of Former Kano Emir SLS against the PCACC.
