“The 8th Kano State House of Assembly to unravel this mystery, set up a seven-man committee to investigate the alleged offence, but this investigation was short life by an injunctive order issued by the Kano State High Court over lacking of power of the Assembly to investigate any criminal offence but due to his immunity at that time, no any action was taken in this regard.

‘’We wish to draw your attention to the fact that an ordinary man on the street in Nigeria as well as anti-graft non-governmental organisations like ours are still very much interested in the outcome of this investigation and faces the consequence of his action to serve as a deterrence on people in power and private citizens to shun corrupt practices,” WAI added in the petition.
