Kano state Complaints and Anti- Corruption Commission has said there is no court order stopping it from investigating alleged mismanaging of Kano Emirate Fund.
The Commission said although there is a court order issued restraining it from executing a warrant of arrest on three Emirate Council staff and it is obeying it by maintaining status quo.
A statement issued by the Commission’s Chairman, Muhuyi Magaji Rimi Gado on Monday, made available to newsmen said the Commission as a law abiding organization that will always operate within the ambit of the law and respect court orders.
It noted that no court of law is empowered to stop a statutory agency from performing their statutory responsibility, citing an authority in Obiwusi vs EFCC & ANOR (2018) LPERLR-44536).
“The commission is a law abiding institution, very interested in the moral path, doing the right thing and has never consciously broken in law to the best of its acquaintance. Hence, the commission will continue to obey the law as always, ”
