THE State Government has officially withdrawn its lawsuit against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) seeking to stop it from probing the immediate past Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje.
The government’s decision was revealed in a letter addressed to Sanusi Musa, SAN, and submitted before the Federal High Court in Kano. The letter, dated July 4, 2023, was signed by Haruna Isa Dederi, Kano Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice.
In the letter, the Attorney General stated, “We write to notify you that Kano State Government and the Attorney General of Kano State wish to debrief you of the earlier instructions, given to you to handle the case NO: FHC/KN/71/2023 between Attorney General of Kano State and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).”
He further instructed the legal counsel to refrain from taking any further steps in the case, including appearing in court or filing any additional processes.
