Kano suspends Corruption Probe on Emir Sanusi Lamido

Kano suspends Corruption Probe on Emir Sanusi Lamido

The probe against the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, into the financial dealings of the Emirate council has been suspended by the State government's anti-corruption agency.

The chairman explained that the state legislature had taken over the case by constituting an eight-man committee to conduct a similar probe when the commission was on top of the situation.

Chairman of the Commission, Mr. Muhuyi Magaji Rimin Gado told THISDAY on phone yesterday that the suspension of the commission's investigation was in line with Section 6 of its operational guideline.

Meanwjile, the Premium Times reports that the anti-corruption agency was not impressed with the state's House of Assembly for carrying out its own investigation.

However, he said the commission suspended the probe to avoid a "crisis of concurrent investigation with the state House of Assembly and possible litigation by interested parties".
