The Federal High Court sitting in Kano, led by Justice Simon Amobeda, has issued an interim order to halt the actions of two state commissions of inquiry established by Kano State Governor Abba Yusuf.


The commissions were set up to investigate former Kano State Governor and current National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Umar Abdullahi Ganduje.

Justice Amobeda’s interim order states, “An order of interim injunction restraining the 4th and 5th Defendants/Respondents from performing the executive functions assigned to them by the Governor of Kano State in Court Rooms meant to adjudicate disputes between persons and authorities in Kano, pending the hearing and determination of the instant suit.”


This decision followed a review of the affidavit supporting the ex parte application, which was sworn by Idris Abdullahi Dawakin Tofa, a resident of Asokoro, Abuja.

The application included exhibits labeled A-C and a written address by the Applicant’s Counsel, Abdulrrazaq A. Ahmed, Esq.

The court has given the respondents five days from the receipt of the court order and documents to file their response.

The respondents in this case are the National Judicial Council, Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission, Attorney-General of Kano State, Hon. Justice Farouk Lawan Adamu, and Hon. Justice Zuwaira Yusuf.

Justice Amobeda has scheduled the hearing for May 28, 2024.
