Former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has asked a High Court in Kano to restrain the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from probing him.
Ganduje wants a declaration that there is a pending case (No: CV/1598/2021 between him) Jaafar Jafaar & Anor, before a FCT High Court in which he is challenging the authenticity of the video.
“The defendant cannot exercise its investigative powers under the sections 6, 7 and 13 of the EFCC (Establishment) Act 2004 (CFCC ACT), until after the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja (Coram: Hon. Justice Y. Halilu), has decided the matter before it,” the suit reads.
The video was published by Daily Nigerian in 2018 and after threats of incarceration, the Publisher Jaafar Jaafar and his family fled to the United Kingdom.
