The Kano State Government has submitted to the Federal High Court, Kano, withdrawing its suit against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) seeking to stop it from further inviting, investigating, or interrogating former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
In a letter signed by the Kano Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Haruna Isa Dederi, dated 4th July 2023, and addressed to Sanusi Musa, SAN, contained the notice of withdrawal of the suit submitted before Federal High Court Kano.
According to the letter, “We write to notify you that Kano State Government and the Attorney General of Kano State wish to debrief you of the earlier instructions, given to you to handle the case NO: FHC/ KN/71/2023 between Attorney General of Kano State and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).”
The letter stated that Sanusi Musa, SAN, and his team members are instructed not to take any further steps on the matter, either by appearing in court or filing any processes in respect of the case.
The Kano State Government had issued a fiat instrument to restrain EFCC from investigating the controversial dollar video under the former governor through the Ministry of Justice.
