No Court Has Stopped Emirate Council Probe — Kano Agency

Kano State Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission on Monday said no court order had stopped it from investigating alleged mismanagement of Kano Emirate fund.

The commission said although there was a court order restraining it from executing a warrant of arrest on three emirate council workers, it was however obeying the order to maintain the status quo.

A statement issued by the commission’s Chairman, Muhuyi Gado, on Monday said the commission as a law-abiding organisation would always operate within the ambit of law and respect court orders.

It noted that no court of law was empowered to stop a statutory agency from performing its statutory responsibility, citing an authority in Obiwusi vs EFCC & ANOR (2018) LPERLR-44536).

‘’The commission is a law-abiding institution very interested in the moral path, doing the right thing and has never consciously broken any law to the best of its acquaintance. Hence, the commission will continue to obey the law as always. (PUNCH)
