A Federal High Court in Kano has given two judges, Justice Farouk Lawan Adamu and Justice Zuwaira Yusuf, a 48-hour ultimatum to resign from the panel investigating former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

The judges were appointed by Governor Abba Yusuf to lead two separate commissions of inquiry.

Justice Simon Amobeda, presiding over the case, ordered the judges to step down from the probe panel or face consequences. If they fail to comply within 48 hours, the National Judicial Council will stop paying their remuneration, allowances, and benefits from the Consolidated Revenue Fund.

The court’s decision comes in response to a suit filed by Ganduje, seeking to stop the probe into his administration.

The respondents in the case include the National Judicial Council, Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission, Attorney-General of Kano State, and the two judges.

Report Afrique reported that Ganduje was suspended in his ward by the executives of the All Progressive Congress citting alleged corruption and other offences such as failure to pay statutory party dues, creating internal conflict among party members, and anti-party activities during the 2023 general elections.
