A Chief Magistrates’ Court in Kano, on Tuesday, ordered the arrest of three persons including Mannir Sanusi, the Chief of Staff to the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.
Naija News understands that the three were dragged before the court by the Kano State Public Complainant and Anti-corruption Commission for failing to honour its invitation in a N4 billion fraud investigation against the Emir of Kano.
The Chief Magistrate, Mohammed Idris ordered the arrest of Sanusi, who holds the traditional title of Damburan Kano, Mujitaba Abba and the Accountant of Kano Emirate Council Sani Muhammad-Kwaru over their alleged refusal to honour the commission’s invitation.
The court noted that the commission wrote to the court seeking for an order of arrest against the three palace officials.
Idris consequently issued and signed the arrest warrant sequel to a motion by Salisu Tahir, Chief State counsel.
When contacted, the Chairman of the commission, Mr Muhiyi Magaji said the three persons that have arrest warrant on their heads are the principal suspects in the case.
