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.
