Kwankwaso Seeks Court Injunction Stopping EFCC from Arresting Him


The former Governor of Kano State and now a serving senator, Alhaji Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has approached a High Court sitting in Gezawa,  seeking an injunction to restrain the Economic and Finance Crimes Commission (EFCC) from arresting him.
A notice filed by Kwankwaso’s attorney has been received by the Gezawa High Court registry and the court has subsequently fixed the case for hearing for tomorrow.
Pensioners in the state had written a petition to the EFCC against the former governor, accusing him of mismanaging the state’s pension fund.
The petition filed on their behalf by Bashir Nasir &Co and signed by A. B. Bulama, alleged that the former governor deposited the sum of N2billion in the Kano branch of the defunct Euro Bank Plc.
The petition added that soon after the deposit was made the bank went into liquidation.
According to the petition, Kwankwaso refused to follow up for a claim of the said deposit from the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC).
The petitioners said the action of the former governor was a flagrant violation of the provisions of  the Kano State Pension and Gratuity Law.
Recently, the Accountant General of the state, the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Finance and his counterpart at the Ministry of Works were quizzed by EFCC in connection with the petition.
Kwankwaso, who has been hibernating in Abuja since he handed over power to Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, is believed to have left behind a N300 billion debt that included N199 million unpaid advert bills. is your one-stop online news magazine blog.
