Lebi Oluwaseyi
, Nigeria.

A Kano State High court on Monday ordered the state House of Assembly investigative panel to stop investigating the bribery allegation against Governor Abdullah Ganduje, pending the determination of a case filed before it on the matter .

The order followed a suit filed by one Muhammad Zubair , who instituted the case for himself and the national coordinator of Lawyers for Sustainable Democratization of Nigeria .

The suit is against three defendants : the Kano state House of Assembly, Chairman of the investigative committee , Baffa Babba Dan- Agundi, and the Attorney General of the state and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Ibrahim Muktar.

The presiding Judge, Justice A T Badamasi, in an interim injunction , ordered the parties involved to maintain status quo pending the hearing of the motion on notice .

He , therefore , adjourned sitting till Monday ( November 12) for hearing on the motion on notice .

NAN recalls that the State legislature had on October 15, constituted a seven - man committee to investigate the authenticity of the bribery video clips allegedly showing Ganduje receiving bribe from a contractor.
