Suspended Kano anti-graft boss seeks court order to stop arrest

The suspended Chairman of Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC), Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado, has asked a federal high court in Kano to stop the police from arresting him.

But the court, presided over by Justice Jane Inyang, on Wednesday ordered the respondents in the suit, including the police and the Speaker of the state House of Assembly to appear in court to show the reason the interim order sought by the suspended chairman should not be granted.

An ex-parte order moved before the court by counsel to Rimingado, Barrister Muhammad Dan’azumi, said the application ex-parte seeking the court to restrain the respondents was supported by a 44-paragraph affidavit deposed to by Zaharaddeen Magaji Rimin Gado, a son of the applicant, praying the court to restrain the six respondents from arresting his father pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

While moving the application before the court, Barrister Dan’azumi urged the court to restrain all respondents in the suit from arresting his client, arguing that there was an existing order dated 23rd July, 2021 by Kano State High Court presided over by Justice Sanusi Ado Ma’aji, which restrained the respondents from arresting his client.

The judge, who ordered that hearing notice be served to all respondents, consequently adjourned the case until November 3rd for the hearing of motion on notice.
