Sanusi’s suit was filed against Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, Kano Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission, the Chairman of the Commission and Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice, Kano state.
METROWATCH recalls that the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission is investigating the 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II over allegation of N2.2 billion land racketeering at Gandu Sarki.
The court had granted an interim order directing parties to maintain status-quo pending hearing of the substantive suit brought before him by the Plaintiff, Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II in March.
At the resumed hearing on Monday, the presiding Judge, Justice Ambrose Lewis-Allagoa dismissed the suit on the ground that the fundamental rights of the 14th Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II was not infringed upon with the investigation.
However, counsel to the parties were not in court at the ruling.
