The legal team representing the former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II has said that the former monarch has initiated processes to challenge the judgement of the Federal High Court in Kano which dismissed the suit he instituted to seek for the enforcement of his fundamental right.
The court on Monday decided that Mr. Sanusi’s fundamental right has not been breached by the investigations of Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC) into alleged land sales scam in which the former emir was said to have been involved.
A release circulated on Wednesday, said to have emanated from the former emir’s team, said Mr Sanusi had given them the instruction to appeal the judgement after studying it, and that they have already filed a notice of appeal and as well as an application for injunction pending the hearing of the appeal.
The team said it has confidence that there was merit in its appeal, adding that “the facts and the law before the Court of Appeal are in favour of our client.”
It therefore urged all parties to the appeal to put on hold any action on the matter until the appeal has been determined.
