The Government of Kano State has withdrawn its earlier suit seeking to stop the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, from further inviting, investigating, or interrogating the immediate past Governor of the state Abdullahi Ganduje.
The notice of withdrawal of the suit submitted before Federal High Court Kano was contained 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.
It read, ”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).
“You and your team members are therefore 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 Attorney General concluded.
Recall that the Kano state government under the former governor Abdullahi Ganduje through the Ministry of Justice had issued an instruction to restrain EFCC from investigating the controversial dollar video.
