Court takes decision on Kano Assembly investigating Ganduje over alleged bribery scandal

A Kano State high court presided over by Justice Ahmad Badamasi, has ruled that the Kano State House of Assembly has no power to investigate the $5million bribery allegation against the Governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje.

Badamasi, in his judgement on Thursday, agreed that collecting bribe from contractors is a criminal offence in section 115 and 116 of penal code.

The judge however stated that the House has no capacity to investigate criminal offences.He said investigating criminal offence is the function of agencies under executive arms such as the police, the EFCC and the ICPC.

Badamasi therefore gave an order restraining the House from interviewing or inviting anyone on the bribery allegation against Governor Ganduje.
