The Federal High Court sitting in Kano has restrained the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commission from investigating the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.
The court presided over by Justice Ambrose Lewis-Allagoa granted the interim order directing parties to maintain status quo until hearing of the application brought before him by the Emir.
Chairman of the Commission, Muhyi Magaji, State Attorney-General, and Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, are joined as parties in the suit.
Counsel for the Emir, Nuruddeen Jimoh, moved for the ex parte order which the court granted asking parties to maintain status.
The court has fixed March 18 for the hearing of the matter.
It will be recalled that the Commission had extended invitation to the Emir to appear before it on Monday in respect of some alleged land deals.
