Chairman of Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC), Muhyi Magaji Rimin Gado, has described withdrawal of the policemen attached to the commission as corruption fighting back.

Daily Trust had reported how the Kano Police Command withdrew police officers from the state anti-corruption commission.

In a statement, the command’s spokesperson, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, said the development was sequel to routine staff audit being carried out by the command.

But addressing newsmen in his office on Friday, the chairman said policemen working in the commission exhibit professionalism and do not compromise, especially when investigating high-profile cases.

“If you are fighting corruption you step on toes and you would not be forgiven.bSo corruption is fighting back.

“From the look of things there are people trying to stop the commission from its work,” Rimin Gado stated.

He commended the police authorities for clarifying their position on the withdrawal which was hinged on personnel audit, saying that there was a communication  gap from what had happened.

Rimin Gado said he was not the only one taking the heat as police officers involved in investigation of high-profile cases are also taking the heat.

He, however said they would not relent but continue to do the job devoid of compromise.

He said between 50 and 100 court orders  were served on the commission, asking it to stop investigation of some high-profile personalities, the latest, according to him, was the order  given by Justice AM Liman of the federal high court Kano.

Muhyi said the commission has worthy partners in the police, DSS and ministry of Justice, adding that states like Jigawa and Benue were emulating what PCACC is doing.
