A Kano High Court presided by Justice Sanusi Ma’aji has restrained the Kano State House of Assembly from investigating a former chairman of Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission, PCACC, Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.
The Kano State House of Assembly had invited Rimingado to appear before its ad-hoc committee investigating a petition against him on Wednesday July 14, 2021.
But Rigingado, while citing health grounds and attaching medical records, demanded a certified true copy of the petition the assembly received against him and requested for more time appear.
But at the High Court on Friday, the judge ordered as follows:
“Order of Interim Injunction is hereby granted to the Plaintiff/Applicant restraining the Defendants/Respondents from taking any step related to or in connection with this matter pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.
“Order is hereby granted accelerating the hearing of this matter by abridging time within which the Defendants/Respondents may file and serve their respective Court process in this matter.
“Order is hereby granted directing the service of the process of this Court in this matter to be affected by serving the office of the Honourable Attorney-General of Kano State.”
The judge adjourned the case till August 6, 2021.
