Ganduje $5m Bribery Scandal: Kano Court Restrains Assembly Probe Panel by litdutchboy: 2:33pm On Dec 06
A Kano High Court presided over by Justice A.T. Badamasi on Thursday in Kano granted an Order of Injunction restraining Kano State House of Assembly Investigative Committee from further investigating the $5m bribery allegations involving Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

It should be recalled that the court had earlier ordered the state House of Assembly to maintain the status quo ante pending the determination of the originating summons filed by the National Coordinator of Lawyers for Sustainable Democracy in Nigeria, Barrister Mohammed Zubair, which ruled in favour of the plaintiff.

On behalf of himself and the Lawyers for Sustainable Democracy in Nigeria, Zubair sued Kano State House of Assembly, Chairman of the Investigative Committee on the bribery allegation against Ganduje (Baffa Babba Danagundi) and the state Attorney-General, challenging the constitutionality of the House investigating the bribery allegation, which is a criminal case.

Counsel to the plaintiff, Barrister Nuraini Jimoh, in the last sitting before the judgment, argued that Kano State House of Assembly lacked the powers to probe the criminal allegations against Ganduje.

The state House of Assembly, according to him, only has the powers to make laws, establishing an anti-graft agency which, by law, can investigate such matter.

In his submission, the state Attorney-General, Ibrahim Muktar, who is also the Third Defendant in the litigation, aligned himself with the position of the counsel to the plaintiff.

”By virtue of my office, my own is to follow the law. I have perused the application, I stand with the plaintiff and I adopt all the processes by the plaintiff, including his argument.”

Also, the Attorney-General urged the court to disregard the counter affidavit filed by the First and Second defendants, arguing that, “It is not safe for the court to rely on the entire affidavit,” because the identity of the witness was not disclosed.

While citing Section 115 of the Evidence Act (2011), he insisted that the affidavit lacked credibility.



Counsel to the defendants, Barrister Mohammed Waziri, in his argument, told the court that the Kano State House of Assembly Investigative Panel engaged in a fact-finding mission, and not the investigation of criminal allegation.

While delivering judgment on Thursday, Justice Badamasi ruled in favour of the plaintiff, stating that the power of investigation by the state House of Assembly, as contained in Section 128 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, “is neither absolute, nor at large. It is restricted by sub-section two of the same Section,”



At the close of the day, counsels to both the plaintiff and the defendants not only congratulated the judge for his “deep sense of judgment,” but also agreed to abide by the verdict.

Gandollar is a Honorable man according to the dullard, so why should he be investigated.

EFCC too suddenly remembered Gandollar has immunity, but forgot same for Fayose when he's personal accounts were frozen along with those of opposition state.

Buhari is really fighting corruption.

Ayodele Fayose a sitting governor was investigated and his bank account domiciled in Skye bank was frozen. EFCC invited him to their office even before the expiration of his tenure.


Governor Ortom was accused of corruption and Benue state's bank account was also frozen. Same thing with Akwa Ibom just because they left the demonic party.


An APC governor was caught on 12 different video tapes hiding dollars in his babariga, the court of law supported him. Buhari called him man of integrity for stealing.



Sadly, BUHARI has started setting a new way of perpetrating corruption. They call it Organized Corruption/Stealing....I believe those who are supporting this administration are mentally disturbed sha. APC CHAIN!

Our problem is not just APC or PDP
It is the whole system
The whole country, the west, south, north and the middle belt.
Everyone of us is part of this collective problem.
Why will a court stop something like this, where do we run to if the court cant defend us, where
You look at ganduje or smalldoctor's case and you wonder if there is hope for the common man.
The executives are stealing and cluessless
The legislatures can't keep the executives in check, the cant even help joun hand to run an efficient government.

The judiciary is just there.. tolerant and encouraging the rascality of the two other bodies.

The people are suffering and smilling
Supporting failures and chronic thieves..
The whole nation is messed up.. the only hope is for our teachers to help raise a better generation.. cos our parents, leaders, clergymen and every other person have collectively failed this country.
Pls don't quote me with insults

Nigeria is truly a case of the book, the animal farm.
This should go down as one of the most clueless and useless government ever in the history of this nation.
Nothing is currently working in Nigeria at the moment.
Our president is now an object of ridicule across the atlantic.
God help us all.
Nigeria is now been likened to the animal farm.
It shall never be well with Apc.

I am more concerned a judge can grant a restraining order into an investigation like this.

This country is slowly becoming failed and I pity the remaning Nigerians seating and watching crooks get away with impunity.
