Alleged misappropriation: Ganduje’s case assigned to new judge

The case of alleged misappropriation, and diversion of funds filed against the All Progressive Congress (APC) National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje and seven others has been transferred to a new judge.

 

Recall, the case was earlier before a Kano High Court 4, presided by Justice Usman Na’abba, has now been transferred to Kano High Court 7 sitting at Miller Road presided by Justice Amina Adamu-Aliyu.

The Kano State Judiciary Public Relations Officer, Baba Jibo-Ibrahim, in an interview on Thursday in Kano, confirmed that the State Chief Judge, Justice Dije Abdu-Aboki, has transferred the case.

Jibo-Ibrahim said the office of the CJ has the power to direct and transfer a case at any stage so far it has not reached the level of judgment.

Ganduje, alongside his wife, Hafsat Umar, Abubakar Bawuro, Umar Abdullahi Umar, Jibrilla Muhammad, Lamash properties Limited, Safari Textiles Limited and Lasage General Enterprises Limited are charged with eight-count charge.

The state government instituted an eight-count charge bordering on bribery allegations, misappropriation and division of public funds running into billions of Naira against the defendants.

However, no date has been fixed for the case before Justice Adamu-Aliyu.

Justice Na’abba, on April 29, fixed May 16, for ruling in an application by the State Government, seeking a substituted service on the respondents.
