A Federal High Court in Abuja has nullified the directive of Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State to review the state Attorney-General’s legal advice on the alleged murder case earlier preferred against Rep Alhassan Doguwa.

Justice Donatus Okorowo, in a judgment on Friday, also awarded N25 million in damages against Governor Yusuf for causing psychological pain and damage to Doguwa.

Justice Okorowo also gave “an order of perpetual injunction, restraining the respondents from further interfering with the fundamental rights of the applicant whatsoever.”

Doguwa, who represents Doguwa/Tundun Wada Federal Constituency of Kano State on the platform of the APC, was, on February 28, arrested at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport, while boarding a flight to Abuja.

The police had said they received a report that he led thugs to set ablaze the secretariat of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in Kano, which led to the killing of two.

Although the legislator denied any wrongdoing, he was arraigned in March at a magistrate court in Kano and was later remanded in prison.

He was granted bail in the sum of N500 million by a FHC, Kano after a few days in prison.

However, the charges were withdrawn after the prosecution said it could not “find sufficient evidence to link Doguwa with the said offences.”
